KOKRAJHAR, Aug 26 – BTC chief Hagrama Mohilary has accused the Baksa SP of behaving high-handedly and committing atrocities on BPF workers in the district.
Talking to reporters at the BTC Secretariat Conference Hall here today, Mohilary alleged that the Baksa SP was harassing innocent BPF workers and their family members by arresting them. Mohilary said the SP even withdrew the PSOs attached to BTC member Ansumwi Kunggur Boro, a BPF member, on August 23. But the SP was forced to reinstate the PSOs after the elected BPF members and MLAs threatened to withdraw their security guards.
Mohilary also condemned the killing of Priya Basumatary, a student of Class X, by NDFB(S) militants, and said that the BTC authorities would help her bereaved family by providing a job to a family member. Mohilary also urged the militant groups to shun violence and join the mainstream.
The BTC chief urged the Government to hold meaningful dialogues with the militant outfits for a lasting solution. Mohilary maintained that the “divide-and-rule policy” of the Government would produce negative results and make matters more complicated. He said the Government should be serious about solving the issues once and for all.
