|Sarbananda calls for CBI inquiry|
TEZPUR, March 31 – “The investigation of the murder of Gangaram Kaul has to be conducted by the CBI instead of CID as instructed by the Chief Minister since it was a cold blooded political murder”, said Sarbananda Sonowal, BJP State president while addressing a meeting of Yuba Marcha here at District Library auditorium. He added that the name of an MLA was mentioned in the FIR filed in the murder of Gangaram Kaul case, so the investigation must be done by the independent agency. He mentioned about Daniel Topno’s case in this regard.
“In twelve years of ruling the Congress-led Tarun Gogoi’s government has failed to solve problems of flood, tea garden workers, small tea growers and the foreigners issue. In his tenure the State has got converted to a corrupt state instead of developed State”, he added. He mentioned that during this tenure corruption involving Rs 18,000 crore had taken place which was informed to the previous President of India. Moreover he mentioned about the allegation lodged by the ruling Congress MLAs regarding involvement of a senior Congress leader’s son in syndicate and illegal check gate. He urged the Chief Minister to take stern action against the culprits involved in syndicate.
“The apex court scrapped the IM(DT) act but the State government failed to form tribunals”, he said and added that the Congress-led government in State and the Centre had come close to AIDUF which was formed after scrapping of IM(DT) Act by the apex court to protect the illegal infiltrators.
“The crime rate and the crime against women in the State have grown sharply but the government has failed to curb violence against women and crimes though the Chief Minister holds the portfolio of home ministry also. In the last twelve years altogether 8000 cases of rape and 13000 cases of kidnapping of women were registered in Assam which are yet to be disposed off”, he added.
