Demanding the arrest of Hojai MLA Shiladitya Dev for “maligning” the image of Padma Bhushan awardee and legendary Assamese litterateur late Sayed Abdul Malik, members of All Assam Goriya Moriya Deshi Jatiya Parishad (AAGMDJAP) staged a protest demonstration in Guwahati on Sunday.
Multiple FIRs have been lodged against Assam’s Hojai MLA Shiladitya Dev for his alleged derogatory remarks.
The Assam Congress’ minority wing filed an FIR against Dev for fanning communal tensions. Separate FIRs were subsequently filed by the All Assam Goria-Moria-Deshi Jatiya Parishad, All Assam Goria Yuva-Chatra Parishad and Asom Songrami Yuva Manch.
They also alleged the MLA of trying to fuel communal clashes in the state by repeatedly saying hateful statements against the Muslim community in the state.
