New Delhi, Nov 1 (UNI) The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) has appealed to all political parties to raise their voice above political lines against the utter negligence of the ruling Congress party towards the security concern of the country which the latter had taken very casually.
Party General Secretary and Lok Sabha MP Sarbanand Sonowal while talking to newspersons took note of the number of incidents that have taken place in various parts of the country, including the recent serial bomb blast in Assam, of which the Islamic Security force (ISF) of Indian Mujahideen (IM) group has claimed the responsibility. He said all such incidents make it amply clear that the country has to face a hard time in coming days if those responsible for it are not dealt with a strong hand by merely taking it as communal or political issues.
He alleged that the ruling Congress has always attempted to communalise the security concern of the country. Number of instances are available whereby it could be concluded that the Congress has been adopting a casual approach in dealing such Anti-Indian Forces, even as the intensity of their activities are growing at an alarming rate posing a great threat to the national security, Mr Sonowal said.
He said the AGP had earlier warned that the situation of the North Eastern Region (NER) would become worst than that of Kashmir if the Government fail to realise the urgent need of dealing with the highest national priority. The problem has multiple dimensions in the region owing to the proximity of its 98 per cent boundary with neighbouring countries against only two per cent link to the mainland.
The MP said large number of domestic militant outfits are being patronised from these countries. The presence of more than 60 lakh illegal Bangladeshi migrants in the NER has facilitated ISI to conveninently establish its operational base in the region, which is the significant security concern of this day.
