November 7, 2020: Leader of Opposition in Assam Assembly Debabrata Saikia has demanded an inquiry into the alleged shouting of pro-Pakistan slogan in Silchar on Friday.



"I feel extremely concerned over media reports that some people raised ‘Pakistan zindabad’ slogans at the Kumbhirgram airport in Silchar after the arrival of the AIUDF President, Shri Badruddin Ajmal. The exact word used by the sloganeers could not be made out distinctly from the news reports due to background noise in the video footage. The Government should immediately direct the police to question the assembled people, analyze all available video footage and utilize forensic technology to ascertain whether the word used before the word ‘zindabad’ was actually ‘Pakistan’ or something else," he said in a statement.



He further stated, "If the word ‘Pakistan’ was actually used, then those guilty of this nefarious act must be identified and brought to book. Further, in that event, the force which is trying to create unrest in our society via such condemnable deeds must be identified and awarded stringent punishment."
