The Cachar district Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) President Amitesh Chakraborty on Thursday categorically denied making any statement before the media about the Morcha’s plan to withdraw the FIR registered against Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) president Lambokstar Marngar if the latter publicly apologised for the students union putting up ‘offensive’ banners and posters in Shillong recently.
Talking with Cachar Chronicles, Amitesh Chakraborty, President of Cachar BJYM said, “The news which is circulating in a section of the media is their own creation for publicity stunt. I have never said that the FIR would be withdrawn if the KSU president publicly apologises for the posters put up by the union. Things will proceed according to law and that is the stand of the party”, Mr. Chakraborty said.
Reportedly, district BJYM, which is the youth wing of BJP Cachar, had on October 23, lodged the complaint against the KSU president at Silchar Sadar police station after the students’ union had put up banners saying, “all Bengalis in Meghalaya are Bangladeshis.”
As per the written complaint, Amitesh Chakraborty has demanded strict action against the chief of Khasi Students Union (KSU) Lambokstar Marngar “as per law” and that such incidents should never happen in future.
It may be mentioned that after FIR Lodged against the KSU Chief in Silchar Sadar Police Station ,BJP MLA of South Shillong, Sanbor Shullai had requested Amitesh Chakraborty to withdraw the FIR “in the best interest of the people, state and party”.Shullai also requested the senior Assam minister and NEDA Convener Dr.Himanta Biswa Sarma to intervene and request the BJP youth wing President of Cachar to withdraw the FIR against the KSU chief Marngar.
