"No Official Communication Over Making Hindi Compulsory": Assam CM Clarifies
Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma

Guwahati: While claiming that snooping into the phones of a public representative is unconstitutional, the Chief Minister of Assam Himanta Biswa Sarma on Monday has strictly directed the government officials to stop the approach of tapping phone calls from now onwards.

Addressing the media, CM Sarma said, “Tapping a phone call of a public representative is unconstitutional, it is not legal. The way an MLA’s phone call was recorded and later shared with the media was not right. If this approach continues, then people will find it difficult to make a call thinking of phone tapping.”

Regarding the MLA Amiya Bhuyan and the controversy, the party will take its stand and will advise him whatever it is necessary as per the protocol, stated CM Sarma.

“I request all the government officials to listen to the Ministers or the MLAs whenever they make a phone call. As they are the elected representatives of the people, please listen to them, but, if they ask him/her to pursue any illegal activity don’t follow their orders. One must perform his/her duty by obeying the laws of our country. Please don’t take each other as enemies,” added the chief minister.

It may be mentioned that earlier on Sunday, reacting to the audio clip controversy between the Bihpuria MLA Amiya Kumar Bhuyan and two police officers, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma strictly advised the legislator not to repeat the same in future.

Speaking to the media here in Nagaon, CM Sarma said, “I heard about the two audio clips of the MLA Amiya Kumar Bhuyan and accordingly, advised him not to repeat this again in the future. I clearly told him that whatever happened earlier in Assam shouldn’t be repeated again, if there is any issue or complaint regarding anything one can directly text me on WhatsApp. I will do needful thereafter.”
