Assam assembly Dy Speaker chased by victims of NDFB attack

Assam assembly’s Deputy Speaker Bhimananda Tanti on Thursday faced the wrath of adivasi people who heckled and chased him away and stoned his car when he went to meet the affected families at Biswanath Chariali in Sonitpur district.

As soon as he and other senior leaders reached one of the relief camps, people shouted at him for making a statement on Wednesday that “such incidents have taken place everywhere and recently in Pakistan”. 

The Congress delegation tried to pacify the people but in vain and were chased. Tanti and others were rescued by security personnel. 

The mob then stoned the vehicle and broke the front windscreen.
