GUWAHATI: Assam Pradesh Congress Committee president Ripun Bora on Monday slammed the BJP government for showing 'double standards. He accused the government of turning their backs 'in fulfilling the tall promises made before the assembly polls'.
Talking about the confusion created by the constant changes in decisions regarding board exams, Bora said that the HSLC and HS examinations were canceled followed by a chain of agreements and disagreements. Later a decision was taken to conduct the examinations citing the reason that the state didn't have the system of calculating internal assessment. However, the decision was once again changed and once again the exam was canceled.
It was informed that such mark sheets will be considered only for admission and not for employment. However, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said it will be applicable for both which again added to the confusion.
Accusing the BJP government of creating confusion among the students, Bora said, "Sitting on either poles, both the Chief Minister and Education Minister have created an atmosphere of misgovernance".
He demanded the government to take an ultimate decision.
Further reacting to Pijush Hazarika's comment on MLA Akhil Gogoi's release, Bora said, "Pijush Hazarika had said that there was some kind of special arrangement for Gogoi during the time of his custody. Then the Chief Minister said that Gogoi was cured by vitamins".
He said both of them have insulted the court by making these kinds of remarks.
"It was the court that directed Akhil Gogoi to undergo treatment at GMCH. By making these remarks they have proved that they do not faith in the judiciary", he said.
"Even if any such arrangement is possible then under whose governance it is happening? Himanta Biswa Sarma himself was the previous health minister. So, if any kind of anomaly was taking place in the hospital, BJP is responsible for that.", questioned Bora.
Talking about the issue of cow syndicate Bora further stated, "When we stressed about the cow syndicate, the Chief Minister didn't pay heed to us. However, he himself has admitted to it."
"Did the syndicate take place after May 2 or before 5pm? Didn't the state police seize drugs earlier?" questions Bora.
"It seems everything was working under the blessings of a powerful politician who had the support of everyone. perhaps the money from syndicating went into the pockets of powerful politicians", he added.
He demanded a high-level investigation to be conducted to look into the issue.
