GUWAHATI, Dec 4 - In a stinging flak to the AGP leadership following party president and Agriculture Minister Atul Bora expressing his view in support of the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, an effigy of Bora was found hanging in front of the AGP head office at Ambari last night.
Apparently, some protesters hung the effigy – together with a suicide note – in front of the party headquarters, causing much embarrassment to the regional party which has been the subject of widespread criticism in view of its pro-CAB stand.
The ‘suicide note’ found with the hanged effigy read, “Namaskar, I am Atul Bora and I sold my mother to save my seat in the ministry. Today I feel repentant as I had insulted the 855 martyrs and their sacrifice. I am now repenting and therefore hanging myself in front of the party office...”
Senior police officials said that last night around 1 am a group of youths came to the AGP office and tried to hang the effigy.
After the incident, the Guwahati Police Commissionerate intensified security in and around the AGP office. Police officials also stated that till this evening, no complaint has been filed from the side of the party in this regard.
Repeated attempts by this correspondent to contact the party president for his comments were unsuccessful.
