Guwahati: Raijor Dal president and Sibasagar MLA Akhil Gogoi on Tuesday dared Dhubri MP Badruddin Ajmal and his brother MLA Sirajuddin Ajmal on who’s being more popular in minority-dominated areas of Dhubri.
On the seventh session of the Assam Assembly, MLA Akhil Gogoi told the media, “I challenge both MP Badruddin Ajmal and his brother MLA Sirajuddin Ajmal. Let’s see who is more popular in the minority-dominated areas of Dhubri. I will stand beside both of them in one stage, and let us find out who’s more popular.”
Gogoi also termed both the BJP and AIUDF are communal parties. “BJP is communal and fascist, whereas, AIUDF is a communal and fundamentalist party, but, if compared, BJP is more dangerous for Assam and its people,” said Akhil Gogoi.
Akhil Gogoi appealed before the people of Assam to oppose both BJP and AIUDF for the greater interest of the Assamese society in the state.
“I also appeal to the Muslim people of Assam to boycott AIUDF; else it won’t be possible to oust ruling BJP from power at any cost,” added Gogoi.
Gogoi also claimed that if RSS and BJP retain their hold in the state, the minority community will be deprived of liberty and other fundamental rights.
Slamming the AIUDF party, Gogoi held them responsible for the current jeopardy conditions of the Muslims in the state.
Meanwhile, speaking to the media, AIUDF Jania MLA Rafikul Islam said, “Our party has been always been fighting for the rights of the people of Assam. I urge him to go study the history of the Assam Assembly in the library and find out whether we spoke against the people of Assam or for the people of Assam in our earlier debates in the Assembly session? He has entered the Assembly recently; we are here since 2006, so it will be better for him to watch the proceedings of the session and find out who’s playing communal politics in the state.”
Islam also questioned Gogoi for remaining mum on the issue of NRC, D-voter, Char-Chapori matters in the state etc.
The Jania constituency MLA also blamed Akhil Gogoi for vote splitting in the last state Assembly elections 2021.
