Convince PM to solve ongoing crisis: 12 BJP MLAs to Sonowal
GUWAHATI: Twelve Assam BJP legislators on Thursday met chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Thursday and urged him to convince Prime Minister Narendra Modi to resolve the crisis in the state following the passing of the amended Citizenship Act.
The legislators also asked Sonowal to tell people how the state go nment planned to protect the language and culture of the Assamese people to allay fears and doubts arising out of the amended Act.
“We have appealed to the chief minister to come forward with clarity on how he planned to safeguard the Assamese people,” BJP legislator from Sootea, Padma Hazarika, who led the group, said.
“We have also urged him (CM) to meet the Prime Minister and resolve the crisis in the state immediately. People of Assam are in fear and so are we (BJP legislators). We could not come out of our homes for eight days since the beginning of the protests,” BJP legislator from Dibrugarh Prasanta Phukan, whose house was attacked by protesters earlier, said.
The legislators said the CAA was the party’s policy and they cannot go against it, but there were other ways to protect the culture and language of the Assamese people. “I joined BJP knowing well that the CAA is on the party’s agenda and now I don’t have the moral right to reject it. If me leaving the party would lead to repealing of the Act, I am ready to quit,” Hazarika said.
The legislators said they told the chief minister about immediate steps to grant tribal status to the six communities of the state. They urged him to get a resolution passed by the cabinet stating Assamese would remain as the state language forever.

Is Assam xenophobic or neo-imperialistic or both? Assam is a sparsely populated state compared the other border state West Bengal. Assam has a long history of violence and massacre towards the linguistic minority communities.

Issue is PM is behaving both dumb and deaf now much to utter surprise. At such high office one has to be sensitive to the situation on the ground.

assam and North East needs to be given safeguards to protect its language and culture but I can bet a large section of the minorities have converted to Assamese speaking for their convenience overnight and are going to be the real threats in the years to come
