Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday alleged that the northeast state may become another Jammu and Kashmir, and urged the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) to save the Hindus from “aggression’ by a people of a particular community.
Sarma visited RSS headquarters in Silchar, Assam yesterday. While addressing a closed-door meeting at the HQ, he said, “Assam is going to become another Kashmir.”
“Satras are in great danger because of aggression of people. At the same time, the Hindus living in the tea belt and far-flung border areas of the state are also on the verge of extinction because of massive aggression.
The Assam CM went on to urge the RSS to go to areas and consolidate Hindus to save institutions from danger. He opined that the RSS could do it because it has a grassroot-level organisation and strong bond with common people in remote areas, he said.
Shifting focus to the CAA and NRC, Sarma said it’s true that “some people” in the state are staunch opponents of the two issues, however, things have started to change.
“Members from the intelligentsia, who met recently, conveyed the message to me that Bengali Hindus are never a threat to the Assamese community. People of Assam now understand the reality,” he told the RSS workers. ( Times Now )
