Northeast BJP MPs meet Modi, blame Cong for politics over border dispute

New Delhi, Aug 2 Amid the ongoing border dispute between Assam and Mizoram, BJP’s MPs from the Northeastern states on Monday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and blamed the Congress for indulging in politics over the issue.

Sources said that the MPs met the Prime Minister to discuss issues concerning their states and the ongoing border dispute between Assam with other neighbouring states. The MPs submitted a memorandum on various issues pertaining to the development of the region along with border dispute between Assam and Mizoram.

“Like our fellow Indians, we are extremely pained by the violence that took place on the Assam-Mizoram border. At the same time, we would like to express our clear disapproval of the attempt by sections of our polity led by the Congress Party to indulge in politics over these happenings and use this as a means to indulge in one-upmanship,” the memorandum said.

The MPs pointed out that a series of confidence building measures have also taken place over the last few days.

“Yet, the actions of the Congress Party remain devious and mischievous. We would like to strongly convey to all those elements who view the Assam-Mizoram issue as a means of spreading chaos in India that their shenanigans will not work. India is united and will continue to move ahead on the path of progress,” the memorandum said.

The BJP MPs mentioned that under the NDA government led by Prime Minister Modi development work in the Northeast has been historic and unparalleled.

“No Prime Minister has been as sensitive to the aspirations of the Northeast as Prime Minister Modi. The people of our region are deeply touched by his description of the Northeast as the ‘Ashtalakshmi’ of India’s progress and the rapid development in the region as a part of the ‘Act East Policy’,” they said.

The MPs in the memorandum pointed out that former Prime Ministers Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi were not sensitive to the aspirations of the Naga and Mizo communities.

“The Congress party keeps taking credit for the Mizo accord but in less than two years of the accord, then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi dismissed and humiliated Laldenga so that the state could have a Congress Government,” the memorandum stated.

It further said that had the Congress taken a harder stand on China, the people of Arunachal Pradesh would sleep even more peacefully than they did for many years. In Assam, it is an open secret how top echelons of the Congress encouraged instability in the state through the 1970s and 1980s.

A BJP MP from Assam, Dilip Saikia said, “All the BJP MPs from the Northeast attended the meeting and discussed the issues concerning the region and also the ongoing border dispute of Assam with Mizoram. We requested the Prime Minister to intervene and find an amicable solution to the border dispute among the Northeast states.”

On July 26, in a violent clash between the police of both states, six Assam Police personnel were killed and more than 50 people injured over a disputed stretch of their boundary, near Dholai in Cachar district.

Following the clash, Union Home Minister Amit Shah spoke to the Chief Ministers of both states and asked them to maintain peace along the border and find an amicable solution to the dispute.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Published

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
