ATTSA files FIR against Kurmi for flouting Covid norms | Guwahati News


JORHAT: The Assam Tea Tribes Students Association (ATTSA) lodged a written complaint against former Congress legislator and new entrant to the BJP, Rupjyoti Kurmi, on Friday for alleged violation of Covid norms by organising public meetings in his constituency Mariani in the past few days.
The ATTSA Mariani regional unit filed the police complaint against Kurmi at Mariani police station in Jorhat district alleging inter alia that Kurmi had organised public gatherings with more than 250 people where state minister for power, tourism and sports Bimal Bora was also present.
Kurmi, a four-time Congress legislator from Mariani Assembly constituency, joined the BJP after he resigned from the Congress and Assembly last month. Mariani will go for bypoll after the resignation of Kurmi, who is a frontrunner for garnering a ticket from the BJP.
Mariani police station officer-in-charge Bidyut Dutta said, “We have received an FIR from ATTSA against Kurmi and our investigation is on.”
ATTSA Mariani unit general secretary Dinesh Sahu said, “At a time when Jorhat district has been declared total containment zone and Covid protocols have been strictly imposed by the administration to stop the spread of Covid-19, former MLA Rupjyoti Kurmi organised a public meeting at Hunwal tea estate in Mariani on Sunday. More than 250 people belonging to tea tribe community gathered in the meeting where state power minister Bimal Borah was the chief guest. Kurmi illegally gathered these large number of fellow tea garden workers by violating all Covid rules and regulations.”
“Earlier, Kurmi had organised party meetings by violating Covid norms at several tea gardens in Mariani to persuade tea garden workers to join the BJP. We condemn the activities of the former MLA and have filled an FIR against him,” Sahu added.
