Guwahati: More than 960 Muslim families at Dhalpur under Darrang district of Assam were evicted by the BJP government of Assam at gunpoint, two weeks ago but the brutality of BJP led Sangh parivar didn’t end even now.
On Wednesday evening, BJP MLA and Chairman of for Garukhuti Agricultural project, Padma Hazarika along with government armed forces and a group of RSS members, entered No 3 Dhalpur village and burnt the remaining assets of the villagers.
It may be mentioned that on 23 September 2021, the Darrang district administration had evicted the villagers forcefully. During the eviction drive that day, Assam police had mercilessly opened fire on the villagers, in which two persons were killed and more than 20 persons injured.
The brutality of the Assam government was criticised from all corners not only in Assam or India but it had worldwide reactions. But it seems the government of Assam has not learnt enough from the public criticism.
Rafiqul Islam, a youth of the village told this correspondent that as police opened fire on the villagers on the 23rd of September, all the villagers shifted themselves to the southern part of the village. They have been living there under the open sky and carrying all their assets so that they can build some huts there to live.
But on Wednesday evening Padma Hazarika came to the village and gathered all the wooden pillars, beds, bamboos etc in several places and burnt all these useful materials. Nur Islam, a youth of the locality said that when the villagers left carrying all their assets from the evicted village for building their houses in the place demarcated by the district administration, what was the necessity to burn them?
