PPFA slams militants, appeals for I-Day celebration

Sunday - August 12, 2018 10:35 pm , Category : INDIA
Guwahati: Patriotic People’s Front Assam (PPFA) has denounced the diktat of separatist militants on celebration of 72nd Independence Day (of India) and appealed to the people of northeastern region to observe the auspicious day with fanfare.

The PPFA argues that every Indian should hoist the national flag on I-Day and Republic Day, paying tributes to the martyrs of the country’s freedom struggle. Only an ungrateful nation can think of boycotting an occasion scheduled for honouring the martyrs, asserted the forum.

It may be noted that various armed rebel groups comprising United
Liberation Front of Asom (Independent), co-ordination committee of RPF, UNLF, PREPAK, PREPAK (Pro) etc, asked the people of northeast India to boycott the I-Day on 15 August.

In a media statement, terming the region as Western South East Asia, the militant outfits called for total shutdown with effect from
Tuesday midnight to Wednesday evening in the entire region. It also claimed that the I-Day celebrations were imposed in the area where as the people were demanding freedom from New Delhi’s unauthorized rule. The PPFA, however, clarified that militants were only day dreaming to make the region independent out of India, as the people continue rejoicing the country’s independence. Moreover the residents have joined in the nation-building process participating in all elections to elect their representatives in policy making bodies.

“Those militants must not  forget that hundreds of freedom fighters from the alienated region sacrificed immensely for making India a sovereign nation. They faced the batons, bullets and gallows of colonial British forces during the freedom movement. Those brave
hearts should be honoured on I-Day and R-Day,” it added.

The forum also appealed to every individual and organisation of the
region to salute the Tri-colour before demanding dues from the government and spare both the sacred days from any agitating purposes and finally dedicate I-Day and R-Day for paying tributes for known and unknown martyrs of freedom movement.-Window To News
