Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma Saturday said that a new political party in Assam is trying to make its entry by whipping up language sentiment and stern action will be taken against these acts at an appropriate time.
Breaking his silence over the removal of the Assamese poster in Bengali-dominated Barak valley, Sarma subtly hinted that Trinamool Congress is behind all these acts.
“There is a new party that is trying to make its entry in Assam and these activities are done with intentions to provide a footing to this party. The government is keeping a close watch and we are just waiting for the right time to take action,” Sarma said that whoever is indulging in such activities is out and out anti-Bengali and stern action will be taken against such people who are taking the government lightly.
Sarma said there is a set agenda of this party to make feel Bengali population in Assam feel vulnerable so that they can exploit these sentiments.
“ Today, you can see just after the Assamese poster was removed in Barak valley, there may be some incidents against Bengalis in Sibsagar in Brahmaputra valley by some organizations. Now whoever is doing these activities cannot be a Bengali-loving person because they know very well there will be repercussions in Brahmaputra valley. More than 20 lakh Bengalis stay in Brahmaputra valley.
Sarma said that BJP has already started a campaign in Barak valley to expose the nefarious design behind these acts. Bengali Hindus are a minority in Barak valley.
He praised the fact Bengali leaders in Assam in Brahmaputra valley has seen through this design and condemned this incidents vehemently.
