AIUDF MLA harangues Gogoi Government

SILCHAR, Aug 4: AIUDF MLA and general secretary of the party Ataur Rahman Majarbhuiya harangued Gogoi led Government of the State for its discriminatory attitude towards Barak Valley and also for its indifference to take up any concrete action plan for the implementation of economic packages for the benefit of people of this backward region. The AIUDF leader made this observation while addressing a meeting of the members of Barak Valley Economic Development Council held on the premises of Karimganj College on Tuesday.
Continuing his tirade, Majarbhuiya referred to the budget speech of Tarun Gogoi in the State Assembly and gathered the impression that his government “has no priority for the development of this valley as if Cachar, Karimganj and Hailakandi are not on the map of Assam”. During his four years of governance, he pointed out all the projects and schemes were for Brahmaputra Valley which have either been completed or in the process of being complete.
With specific instance of discrimination, AIUDF MLA said after Tarun Gogoi allotted Rs 10 crore for the development of Cotton College, he approached him similar grant for the oldest educational institution Guru Charan College of Silchar, pointing out that non of the colleges in this valley have been considered for any financial help by his government. Even the third and fourth grade posts of State Government departments are being filled up by candidates from Brahmaputra Valley, depriving the educated unemployed youths of this region. He therefore pleaded for exclusive economic development council for Barak Valley for building up infrastructure to improve the socioeconomic condition of people.
Majarbhuiya added to say the story of neglect and deprivation is not only with this government but it has been the tradition with the successive governments at Dispur. In order to prepare a road map for development, he was of the opinion that the people of this valley have to prepare themselves for long drawn struggle to achieve a separate economic development council and it was the only solution for the ills besetting the valley. Others who addressed and expressed their views included Dr Kalam Uddin Ahmed, Tarun Das, Kamalendu Dutta Chowdhury, Dr Shantunu Dutta, Prof Ramanuj Chakraborty, advocate Subrata Paul, etc. All of them were of the opinion if the State Government could hold talks with militant outfits, why not with civilian bodies like Barak Valley Economic Development Council?
