Congress leader Bhupen Borah: Assam CM busy lighting up the stage with his speeches, Police in deep sleep

Guwahati: After a man was killed in broad daylight in the Panjabari area of the city, the Assam Congress asserted that the capital city of Guwahati was no longer under the control of the Assam Police, as thieves and dacoits are now running the city. 

The president of the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC), Bhupen Borah, launched an attack on the Himanta Biswa Sarma-led government, claiming that “a number of such incidents are occurring across the state on a daily basis and people are suffering from insecurity during the term of Himanta Biswa Sarma and the BJP is all too apparent from these incidents.”

It should be noted that a Purabi Dairy manager was shot at close range in broad daylight early on November 21, and that just a few days prior, a woman was robbed of a gold chain, bangles, and cash that she was carrying in her purse.

The APCC leader further claimed in the press release that while the Assam chief minister was out giving speeches, thieves and dacoits had taken over Guwahati.

“Law and order situation is deteriorating. While living in the lap of luxury, the government has pushed the people towards insecurity and is watching the fun,” the release added. 

The release from the Assam Congress also claimed that while the current BJP government is not particularly concerned with protecting the lives and property of the populace, Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma travels in helicopters with Z category security, incurs thousands of crores in debt for living a life of luxury, and creates beneficiaries for vote banks.

Borah further criticised the failure of the CM-led home department and the Assam Police personnel, claiming that there had never before been a case of a ruling party neglecting the public for an extended period of time while in power.

Bhupen Borah asked that the Assam Police and the home minister to immediately find the culprits of such crimes and make sure that the populace is properly protected.
