Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal hailed the restraint and patience shown by the people of the State more particularly the residents of Barak Valley in view of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s inflammatory remarks and her decision of sending a TMC delegation to Barak Valley after the publication of NRC draft.
CM Sonowal also thanked the people of Barak Valley for the exemplary composure that they exhibited without falling prey to the divisive design of the external forces. In a statement the Chief Minister also expressed his thanks to the Bengali speaking people and different organizations of the State for unequivocally registering their protests against West Bengal Chief Minister’s plan of polarizing the State.
He also said that since the very beginning of updating the NRC, some vested interests were hell- bound in destabilizing the process by making remarks inimical to the age-old unity prevailing among the people of Assam. The CM however, said that in spite of all evil intensions, people of Assam showcased a remarkable composure and strengthened the friendship and amity among themselves.
