Army chief triggers row over Assam's AIUDF growning faster than BJP

Situation in Doklam is absolutely fine Army Chief

"It is the people who have voted for us", he said.

All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat consider the statement of Gen. Bipin Rawat as the most unfortunate one and sees it as a beginning of the risky trend to politicalise the institution of army which is revered by all, irrespective of political ideology and affiliation. Owaisi said that it is not the work of the Army chief work to comment on the rise of a political party.

He has also said it is impossible to control the population of Assam with growing Muslim numbers in the state.

However, the Indian Army on Thursday clarified that the comparison drawn between the BJP and AIUDF saying it was neither political nor religious in nature as he only mentioned the "amalgamation and development in the seminar on North-East organised at DRDO Bhawan". One, they are running out of space.

Rawat also said that the influx of Muslim migrants in the northeast is part of a "proxy game" being executed by "our western neighbour (Pakistan)", with support from across the "northern border (China)", to keep the area disturbed. "We will also go and meet the President", Ajmal said. Winning 18 of 126 seats in the 2011 Legislative Assembly election, the AIUDF became the principal opposition party in Assam. "The AIUDF is moving at a faster pace in the state of Assam", Rawat had said.

During the press conference, Ajmal told reporters that the Army chief was misinformed and misguided. "Alternative parties like the AIUDF, the AAP have grown because of the misgovernance of big parties", Ajmal tweeted.

On the issue of Bangladeshi immigration, the cleric-cum-politician said his party was among the firsts to have petitioned the Ministry of Home Affairs to seal the border on the eastern front.

"Development is the main issue and identifying the population of this area (Northeast) with the population of mainland becomes important".

Even the All-India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), another Muslim party, headed by Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi criticised the army chief for making the analogy. If we understand that then we will be able to live together happily.
