Gorkha people cannot be aliens in Assam: Bhaskar Dahal,, AGS general secretary

UDALGURI : “The Gorkha people cannot be aliens in Assam. The people have their glorious history in Assam. They have made a lot of contribution for the State of Assam and India as well. If the so-called Assamese intellectuals feel that the Gorkhas, who devoted to the safety and security of the nation, are aliens then the community people in Bodoland can speak Bodo language.  No disparity and neglect to this community in any sphere will be tolerated,” said Bhaskar Dahal, general secretary of Assam Gorkha Sammelan (AGS) while addressing the gathering at Udalguri on the occasion of 13th triennial conference of Udalguri district committee of AGS. He expressed his anguish at the alleged neglect of the voice of the Gorkhas in BTAD and he appealed to minister Rihon Daimary to convey his message to BTC chief  Hagrama Mohilary. The BTC chief should hear the anguish of the Gorkha people, said Bhaskar Dahal.

The open session was presided over by Ramesh Dahal, the president of Udalguri district committee of AGS. The meeting was inaugurated by Laxmi Sendai, the president of BTC region committee of AGS, and he stressed the need to fulfil their age-old demand of language. A souvenir titled Gorkha Asmita was released by Krishna Bhujel, the working president of AGS. Rihon Daimary, the PHE and Civil Supply Minister of Assam, allayed all the fears of the Gorkha community people and said he would discuss with the BTC chief and also raise question in the Assam Assembly if needed. Ram Prasad Sarma, the MP of Tezpur Constituency and also the chairman of Assam Gorkha Sammelan, said that the Gorkhas were sons of the soil and no disparity with this community would be tolerated. The delegates of AGS selected Ramesh Dahal as president and Bhuban Dhamala as general secretary for the new term.
