“To expedite dev in Assam, Modi Govt attaches tremendous importance”
Guwahati, Mar 08 (HS): Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has said that the main objective of Assam Agitation was to make Assam free from illegal immigrants. In the six year long agitation people irrespective of all caste, creed, language and religion plunged into the movement. Several lives were lost and so many people sustained permanent injuries. In order to make Assam one of the front ranking states in the country, the present State government for the last two years and 10 months has been working resolutely implementing all the clauses of the Assam Accord. Speaking at a function organized by Assam Accord Implementation Department to pay honour to those persons who sustained injuries during Assam Agitation or their family members at Maniram Dewan Trade Centre in Guwahati, Chief Minister Sonowal said that to expedite the rate of development of the state, Central Government under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has attached tremendous importance. He also said that one of the most important clauses of Assam Accord is to seal the border completely. The previous governments did not take any pragmatic steps to seal the border. However, realising that without land swapping deal complete sealing off the border is not possible, the Modi-led Central Government executed the land swap deal in 2014 and took steps to completely seal 272 KM Indo-Bangla border. He also said that the present Central government took the help of technology to seal the 61 km riverine border. Sonowal also said that the previous government for the implementation of Clause 5 of Assam Accord took no pragmatic steps. However, the present government led by Narendra Modi is rendering all possible help for updation of NRC being carried out under the supervision of the Supreme Court of India. After the law and order problem erupted in Barpeta and Chaygaon during the run up to the pilot project of NRC updation process, the previous government did not take any follow up step. However, with the insistence of the present government and the direct supervision of the Supreme Court, after publication of the final NRC, the vexed foreigner’s issue will be solved once for all, the Chief Minister observed. He also said that for the implementation of Clause VI of Assam Accord, a high powered committee has been constituted to recommend steps to safeguard jati, mati and bheti (race, land and hearth). It may be noted that State government as a token of its deep rooted respect has already given Rs. 5 lakh each to the family members of all the 860 martyrs in 2016. Today the government has provided Rs. 2 lakh each to 268 bullet ridden persons or their family members. In memory of the supreme sacrifice of martyrs State government would construct a Shahid Udyan at a sprawling 100 bigha of land in the city so that the supreme sacrifice does not go in vain, Sonowal added.
