New Delhi, Nov 11 (UNI) A delegation of Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) MPs has urged President Pratibha Devisingh Patil to immediately dismiss the Tarun Gogoi-led Assam government for its utter failure in tackling the terrorism.
Talking to newspersons here today, party senior vice president and former Union Minister Biren Baishya said they had submitted a memorandum to the President here yesterday.
During the meet, the delegation apprised Mrs Patil of the problems along with the latest situation in the state and requested her to immediately dismiss the Assam government.
The delegation accused that the state government has not taken the October 30 serial blasts seriously and that is reflected from the fact that instead of pinpointing the accused, the party in power is engaged in the blame game by naming various organisations without any facts, Mr Baishya added.
Responding to a question on how best problem in the state could be resolve, Mr Baishay said the Centre should incorporate a very important clause of taking back of the Bangladesh migrants in the 1971 Indira-Mujib accord immediately and should implement the Rajiv Gandhi Assam Accord in its true letter and sprit so that the demography of the region could be saved from the onslaught of the illegal migrants from Bangladesh.
Party General Secretary and Lok Sabha MP Sarbanand Sonowal who was also at the meet, said the government should immediately seal the entire Indo-Bangla border to stop further entry of illegal migrants.
The AGP MPs were all in one voice said Assam is being used as a transit camp for terrorists and foreign militant groups who enter the country from the highly porus borders of the state before going to their final destination.
They said the people of the state and AGP firmly believes that the country is not safe in the hands of the present Congress led government in Assam and UPA government at the Centre, who have taken a causal approach to the whole issue.
Mr Baishya said they have also urged the President to direct the all concerned authorities for immediately upgrading the National Register of Citizens (NRC) based on the 1971 census reports with the object of saving the land not only in Assam but in the entire North Eastern Region.
