The Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) has asked for exemplary punishment for the murderer of Nandita Saikia named Rintu sharma.
The Committee has also expressed deep concern at the untimely demise of Nandita Saikia, a brilliant student of Dhemaji Moridhol College and resident of Dhakuakhana.
Death of Nandita Saikia is a result of BJP’s failure: APCC
The Assam Pradesh Congress Committee said “The BJP- led Assam Government has failed completely in maintaining law and order in the state, as evident from this dastardly murder. The broad daylight attack on this young student with a machete, leading to her death, exposes the inefficient administrative system”.
“Assam has been number one among states in crimes against women in the last 3 years. Women are not safe in a state where the government is hell- bent on protecting cows” further added.
APCC demands exemplary punishment to the murderer
“We demand that action taken by the police against the perpetrator of the crime should be made clear. We also demand that the government be vigilant against dastardly incidents like Nandita’s murder and provide exemplary punishment to her murderer,” said the Assam Congress.
Security of Women is only a slogan in the state: Assam Congress
The APCC said “Surprisingly to the indignation of all women the Gauhati High Court described the rape- accused student as a future ‘asset’ of the state. Such incidents reveal that the security of women is only a slogan in the state, while an opposite picture is seen in reality”.
“APCC demands that the government conduct a probe into the entire incident that led to the untimely death of Nandita Saikia and provide the strictest possible punishment to the guilty”.
