Guwahati: Popular Front of India (PFI) and Campus Front of India (CFI) are behind the attack on Assam police in the Dhalpur eviction site. Assam chief minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma told the media that it was a pre-planned organised attack designed by organization's like PFI, CFI. All Assam Muslim Student Union (AAMSU) collected 28 lakhs of rupees from the people of Dhalpur to foil the eviction drive by the district administration. But after their failed attempt to resist the eviction, the leaders of some Muslim organizations instigated the people to attack the police in the eviction site. PFI and CFI leaders visited the site in the name of providing food to the evicted people. Evidence is emerging that 6 Muslim leader of AAMSU, CFI, ITEHAD Front and a college lecturer was present there when the protest turned violent in Dhalpur on 23 September. It has been come out in police investigation that few leaders of PFI and CFI from Kokrajhar district was involved in mobilising the violent mob against police.
Dr. Sarma further added that it is time to proscribe PFI. During the anti-CAA protest, the Assam chief minister wrote to the central government to ban PFI. If the organization is not proscribed at the right time, it will organise more such attacks, he added. Again the Assam government is sending a letter urging a ban on PFI. Dr Sarma said there were only 60 families to evict on 23rd September, but how come 10000 people gathered there is a serious question. All these truths will come out in the judicial inquiry, he added.
Targeting the Congress party and Rahul Gandhi the chief minister said, in 1962 during the war with China Congress part bid adieu to Assam and now the Congress leadership doing it with Assamese people. The Congress party thinks that Assamese are going to minority soon in the state, so Rahul Gandhi thinks more about the migrant Muslims now. He alleged that the Congress party now exporting Muslim people to Hindu majority constituencies of Assam. He cited that hundreds of Muslim people from the Rupahi and Dhing constituency of Nagaon district have relocated to the Barsala constituency in Sonitpur district and started encroaching land near the Gupteswar Mandir. Likewise, Sipajhar constituency in Darrang district has also become a target of huge encroachment of Muslim people from Barpeta and Nalbari districts. All these practices are being carried out to grab the Hindu majority constituencies of Assam, he added.
