GUWAHATI: The Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) has taken a jibe at the Bharatiya Janata Party Government after two chief ministers of BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) from Assam and Mizoram have taken their indifferences to Twitter today and started a blame game feud openly.
Barely after a day Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s departure from Northeast, who chaired a meeting in Shillong on July 24 with all North-eastern chief ministers and chief secretaries regarding inter-state border dispute, Mizoram CM Zoramthanga and Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma got into a Twitter debate after a Mizo couple was manhandled in Assam side while they were on the way to Mizoram.
“It has become a matter of great public concern as well as appalling humour that responsible persons like Chief Ministers both belonging to same party are openly arguing with each other on Twitter handles and they have also tagged the Home Minister and Prime Minister,” reads the communiqué issued by APCC General Secretary and Media Chairperson Bobbeeta Sharma.
Taking a jibe at the saffron party, it added, “The BJP Government seems to be running the country through Twitter handles and social media.”
Earlier today, Assam Police personnel were reportedly fired at by some miscreants from the Mizoram border in the Lailapur area of Cachar district leaving some police personnel wounded.
“It is a matter of disgrace that just hours after the Union Home Minister Sri Amit Shah left Assam that such an attack should happen on Assam police personnel and property of Assam Government,” said Congress.
Congress also asked for assurance from the Government to settle the disputes amicably from whatever they have transpired and policies adopted.
“Assam Pradesh Congress Committee contends that there is no clarity on the part of the BJP Government both in the states and at the centre on the issues at hand. An atmosphere of uncertainty will further complicate matters,” it further added.
APCC has condemned the act where a Mizo couple allegedly manhandled by a mob in the border area and asked the governments of both states to make sure that common people should not bear the brunt of their ‘lackadaisical attitude’. It demanded a clear message from the BJP Government on the border issue solution.
The Congress party has also expressed its grave concern over Cachar SP who has sustained injury in the clash condenming the attack.
