The Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) today demanded the Centre declare Assam flood and erosion a national calamity.

“Only the traditional special packages won’t help the state permanently get rid of the problems,” AJYCP President Biraj Talukdar said in a statement here.

“Instead of permanently solving the grave problems, there has been stepped up initiatives from the Centre to sweep away the water resources by covering the Brahmaputra under the river-linking network,” he said.

“Since Independence, the power-that-be in New Delhi has been announcing a meager amount of fund to marginally mitigate the misery of the affected people.

“If these are allowed to continue, the entire geographical area of the main north eastern state would be on the verge of collapse,” Talukdar said.

Blaming it all on the Centre, he said, “We have noticed that the ruling dispensation in Delhi has been trying to pacify the people with only special package, false promises to wash their hands off.”
