Assam Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma condemned the alleged anti-national sloganeering incident which took place outside Silchar Airport on November 6.

According to a video clip shared by Sarma, the incident happened on the arrival of All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) chief and MP Badaruddin Ajmal to Silchar, where supporters were reportedly heard shouting “Pakistan Zindabad’.

After the incident, Sarma took to Twitter to condemn the incident.

He tweeted, “Look at the brazenness of these fundamentalists anti-national people who are shouting PAKISTAN ZINDABAD while they welcome MP @BadruddinAjmal. This thoroughly exposes @INCIndia which is encouraging such forces by forging an alliance. We shall fight them tooth & nail. Jai Hind.”

After the party meeting at Mazbat, Sarma said that he forwarded the matter to the police for further investigation.

He also added that this sort of sloganeering is common while elections are round the corner.

Meanwhile, the AIUDF issued a statement terming the allegations as “fake” and hit out at the BJP for “distorting” the facts.

Terming the move as “cheap politics” of the BJP, the AIUDF claimed that party workers were raising slogans of “Aziz Khan Zindabad”, but the same were distorted into ‘Pakistan Zindabad’.

The election to the 126-member Assam assembly is likely to be held in March-April next year.
