Guwahati, July 31, 2021 (IT): Amid the ongoing Assam-Mizoram border row, a BJP MLA of Assam’s Cachar district was seen provoking Assamese people to “make the economic blockade successful against Mizoram” for the Mizo people to “starve to death.”

BJP MLA Kaushik Rai of Lakhipur constituency in Cachar district was seen in a video provoking the people of Assam to continue the economic blockade against Mizoram.

While addressing the public at Lailapur in Cachar on Thursday, the BJP MLA said, “Mizoram probably does not know that if we do not send gas cylinders, oil, rice and other essential commodities from here, then Mizoram police, government, all people will starve to death.”

“We will be able to pay tribute to our six Assam police jawan only when we make the economic blockade successful against Mizoram. I request you not to listen to the police or the government. Irrespective of whatever they say, we will continue the economic blockade.

“No matter what police says, no matter what the government says, we will take revenge and we will continue the economic blockade. We will not take revenge on the language the Mizoram MP has spoken, but we will take revenge against Mizoram by continuing the economic blockade. I am with you and I appeal to all of you to continue the economic blockade against Mizoram,” Kaushik Rai was seen saying.

Assam Forest Minister Parimal Suklabaidya was also seen in the video when the BJP legislator was delivering his incendiary speech.
