The East Jaintia National Council (EJNC), on Sunday, slammed the president of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) Cachar District, Amitesh Chakraborty for filing an FIR against the president of the Khasi Students' Union (KSU), Lambok Marngar, in Silchar Sardar Police Station recently.
EJNC president Sambormi Lyngdoh said that the BJYM does not have any legal right to interfere with the welfare of the state or to file a complaint against the KSU in Silchar as Shillong does not fall under the Silchar (Assam) jurisdiction.
The EJNC stated that the KSU’s stance was against the Bengalis who illegally migrated from Bangladesh and who were reportedly responsible for creating communal disharmony at Ichamati in East Khasi Hills district of Meghalaya in February this year.
The EJNC stated that the student body was not against the Bengali community in Assam or West Bengal.
“The action of the BJYM Cachar District instigates communalism and instils fear among the Bengali community who work and run businesses in different parts of the state. The organisation strongly condemn people who lit the fire like Vickey Dey, and the former Governor of Meghalaya (Tathagata Roy) who misuses his position,” Lyngdoh said.
The organisation demanded the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government, to take action.
The EJNC also condemned the Legal Right Observatory (LRO), the right-wing of RSS, "who from time to time, interfere with the peace and harmony in the state."
“The LRO, with its fake information, blames the Presbyterian Church for inspiring the KSU to spread communalism in the state," Lyngdoh said.
The EJNC demanded the LRO to prove its claims, and, if it is unable to do so, the organisation has requested the Police Department and the CID of Meghalaya to take action and nab those responsible for "spreading lies and igniting the fires of communalism."
