Cong Delegation Led By APCC President Meets Baghjan Oil Blowout Victims

GUWAHATI: A delegation of the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) led by president Sri Bhupen Kumar Borah visited the victims of the Baghjan oil blowout incident.

The people there were heartbroken and they lamented before the team that they have been left to their fate by the BJP government. It is a matter of great worry that even after a year of the tragedy the promises made have not been fulfilled. Apart from an interim relief package no other rehabilitation plan and promises have been fulfilled.

They have promised Rs 27 crore for building embankment to stop erosion but only a foundation stone has been laid as is the usual practice of the BJP government everywhere and nothing further has been done.

The main road is still in deplorable condition. No effort is seen to promote Magur Beel as a tourist spot. A model hospital was also promised and people are still waiting for it . Employment opportunities were promised at the time of disaster for the affected families but the young boys and girls are still waiting for those promises to be fulfilled. When the victims go to remind the non-fulfilment of their demands to the local authorities they are turned away time and again.

Thus the BJP Government’s pompous claims about protecting the interests of the indigenous people of Assam is nothing but mere rhetoric. The reality is that the BJP government is a party that talks big but actions on the ground are proof of their false promises to the indigenous people of Assam.
