With fresh protests in Assam over infiltration from Bangladesh, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said on Tuesday that his government would come out with a white paper giving details of implementation of the Assam Accord in the first week of October.
Gogoi, who said that it was his government that had taken up implementation of the vital clauses of the Accord, also threw a challenge to the BJP and Asom Gana Parishad to come up with similar white papers on what their governments had done in this regard.
Gogoi said 97 per cent work on construction of a barbed wire fence along the India-Bangladesh border was completed. This was much better in comparison to West Bengal, Meghalaya and Tripura, he said.
"The AGP and BJP unnecessarily raise a hue and cry over the issue of illegal immigrants when an election gets closer. But when they get elected, they simply forget the issue," Gogoi said.
