Guwahati: The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) on Monday accused CM Tarun Gogoi of not includes important historical and factual aspects related to arrival in the white paper which he released recently.
Terming the white paper on the foreigners’ concern a bundle of white lies, the students’ body accused the state government of intentionally not incorporating the important aspects to give impetus to their vested interest to keep their vote bank, and also of not maintaining a clear and consistent stand on the issue.
But AASU didn’t apparently reject the document. It said that it was not foolproof, prone to factual errors, not traditionally correct and was aimed at diverting the people’s attention from the core issue.
The white paper was released by Gogoi on October 20. It is a 94-page booklet contains facts and figures about the foreigners’ issue. The document is considered to be a significant benchmark in as so much as it is the first such document to be starts by any state government on the state’s history and first one to be taken on the floor of the assembly.
