Guwahati, Nov 15 (UNI) An Opposition all-party meeting here today, to discuss the aftermath of Assam serial blasts and the progress of investigations, maintained that growing militancy in the state was threatening the internal security.
Convened by the state's main Opposition party--the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), it was attended by representatives of various parties, including BJP, ASDC, BPPF, NCP, RJD and Samajwadi Party.
However, the Asom United Democratic Front and Left parties were conspicuous by their absence, with AGP's recent tie-up with BJP constructed as the reason for these parties staying away.
The meeting discussed the situation in the state in the aftermath of the October 30 serial blasts as well as communal violence in Udalguri and Darrang district.
It favoured a CBI enquiry into the incidents and advocated that the probe should be conducted in an impartial manner and free from any political interference.
Blaming the state government squarely responsible for the violence, the meeting maintained that the government's failure in checking militancy and fundamentalist terrorism was posing a threat to internal security.
It also demanded the dismissal of the government and announced of intensified campaign against the Congress misrule by a united forum of anti-Congress parties.
