Silchar: Different organisations and public representatives have expressed their concerns over the recent spate of attacks on non-tribals and Bengali-speaking people, particularly in Meghalaya.
Bengali Chhatra-Yuba Samaj, a West Bengal-based social organisation, on Monday strongly protested against the attacks unleashed by the Khasi, Jaintia and Caro groups in Shillong on October 28.
In a statement issued from Kolkata on Monday, Bengali Chhatra-Yuba Samaj’s central committee secretary Tapomoy Biswas said since 1979, Bengalis living in Meghalaya are being harassed. “Covernments come and go, but Bengali oppression does not stop. A few days ago, during a
procession that was brought out by tribal groups in Shillong, youth participants started to attack Bengali pedestrians and beat them up. Some are said to have suffered fatal injuries.
Despite this, both the Meghalaya and the Centre are silent,”
