Assam’s adivasis can come stay in West Bengal: CM Mamata

The government in West Bengal is making necessary arrangements to render help to adivasis coming to the state from Assam for shelter, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said expressing deep sadness over their mass killing. “The brutal mass killing of Adivasis in Assam by armed extremists has deeply saddened me. I strongly condemn the heinous mass killing,” Banerjee said in a Facebook post.

“Many Adivasi families have started coming to our state for shelter. We have made necessary arrangements to help them and we will continue to do so,” she said. “Today on the day of Christmas symbolising peace and love, I appeal that ghastly acts of violence be stopped everywhere,” the chief minister said.

The toll in the violence by NDFB (S) and retaliatory violence by the adivasis in lower Assam since Tuesday rose to 78 on Thursday. Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said that no talks will be held with National Democratic Front of Bodoland, NDFB (Sangbijit Ggroup), which was involved in massacre of people in Assam on Tuesday. 

He declared that strong action will be taken against the group, asserting that the Centre has zero tolerance policy for such crafted terror. 

During his visit to review the situation in the state, he told reporters at Biswanath Chariali in Sonitpur district on Thursday afternoon that the government will take strong measures to deal with the outfit and will control it effectively.
