Adhir Chowdhury hits out at Centre over Nagaland incident

New Delhi, Dec 9 (UNI): Congress leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Thursday hit out at the Centre over Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s recent statement in the House on the December 4 firing incident at Oting in Nagaland’s Mon district.

The Baharampur MP accused the Union minister of making a “misleading” statement on the incident that led to 15 lives being lost.


He also brought up Wednesday’s development when a three-member Congress delegation led by deputy leader in the House, Gaurav Gogoi, en route to Mon district to meet the families of the victims, were detained in Assam’s Jorhat.

Chowdhury, during the Zero Hour in Lok Sabha, on Thursday termed it a ‘brazen’ act.

“In Lakhimpur Kheri (UP) we were stopped by this government and now in Nagaland. The delegation was detained in Assam without any reason,” the Congress leader said.

The Congress MP said, “The Home Minister gave a misleading statement in the House over Mon firing incident. Those people admitted to the hospital said security forces shot at them directly without any alarm.”

Later the Gogoi-led delegation was allowed to go to Dibrugarh after four hours. They met the family members of the injured victims.
