Guwahati, Nov 30 (UNI) The BJP, Assam, today flayed the state government for 'failing' to take concrete steps in the aftermath of the November 24 clashes in Guwahati between adivasi protestors and locals, which left one dead and 250 hurt.

Addressing a press conference here, BJP state president Ramen Deka said, ''The government should fix responsibility for the incident and a minute investigation should be ordered.

He termed the transfer of a few mid-level police and administrative officers as mere 'eyewash' and alleged that the top shots were not booked.

Mr Deka also informed that the state BJP would stage a two-hour dharna in Guwahati on December 3.

He also questioned Congress in-charge V Moily's authority for making yesterday's announcement of an adivasi development council.

The BJP state chief further said that the state government should offer refuge to exiled Bangladesh writer Taslima Nasreen, alleging that the state already had a large population of illegal Bangladeshis and a woman in genuine need should rather be given shelter.
