Assam Govt flayed for city blasts

GUWAHATI, Jan 3 – State BJP president Ramen Deka on Friday warned that the situation in the State would continue to be volatile until and unless terrorism masterminded from Bangladesh is exterminated. Condemning in strong words the serial blasts triggered in the capital city on the first day of the New Year, Deka said that it was indicative of more trouble ahead.

Deka regretted the failure of the government in taking the necessary steps to prevent the recurrence of an October 30-like situation, the day when a series of bomb blasts had rocked the capital city.

Demanding stringent measures to tackle the scourge of terrorism, the senior BJP leader said that the government should immediately plug the security loopholes.

The Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) today demonstrated against the security lapses and increasing terror acts and warned that it would take up more vigorous protest programmes in the coming days if there was no improvement in the security front.

The student body further said that the Tarun Gogoi Government had no moral right to continue in power as it had failed to protect the life and property of the common people.

The Assam United Democratic Front (AUDF) while criticizing the Tarun Gogoi Government said the failure of the government to take up necessary security measures even after having prior information that terrorists might strike again, was reflective of the government’s indifference towards the common people.

The All Assam Markazi Jamiat Ulama has asked the government to identify the perpetrators of yesterday’s serial blasts and mete out exemplary punishment to them.
