Guwahati: The Assam Chamber of Commerce while powerfully condemning the recent attacks on the business community here has demanded that the government certify that the surrendered militants do not have any arms with them.
Addressing mediapersons on Tuesday, Rupam Goswami, chairman of Assam Chamber of Commerce, said that the fact that the surrendered ultras still carried arms with them has not gone well with the people, chiefly the business community, who have to live with a fear of ambiguity.
“During such an auspicious and festive occasion like Deepawali, the business community is scared by the prevailing situation in the capital city and not at all in a joyous mood,” said Goswami.
Demanding the post of a Police Commissioner in Guwahati, Goswami realistic that such a development will improve the law-and-order scenario in the city.
It needs to be mentioned here that the Assam Chamber of Commerce will stage a sit-in demonstration on October 26 from 11 am to 1 pm at the premises of its city office in protest against the assaults on the business community and the compounding civic problems.
