Assam Polls: Miscreants put up Pakistan flag in Rangia
Guwahati: A Pakistani flag was found hoisted in the Gorkuchi area of Assam’s Rangia district on Thursday amid the second phase of the Assam assembly election being held.
Locals alleged that some miscreants put up the flag to bring a communal clash between the people of Gorkuchi.
Speaking to the media, one of the residents said, “The flag was flown after they came to know that the Mahajuth was gaining more votes as the people here came out in their support. We, the people of Rangiua, know very well that which party can do such kind of act.”
Locals informed the officials regarding the flag and later it was taken off from the spot.
Another local said, “The people of Rangia live here peacefully among every community, so I think this is a conspiracy to divide us and gain more votes.”
The voting for the second phase of Assam Legislative Assembly in 39 constituencies began on Thursday from 7 am.
A total of 73,44,631 electors are eligible to vote in phase-2. Of these, 37,34,537 are males while 36,09,959 are females and 135 are transgender.
