Amid the Kaali controversy, another such incident of hurting religious sentiments has emerged in Assam’s Nagaon. A man who was dressed up as Nukkad Natak was arrested for allegedly hurting the religious beliefs of a particular community.

Pradip Sharma, Secretary of Bishwa Hindu Parishad, Nagaon said we shall not tolerate an act like this. We are liberal but that doesn’t allow anyone to take advantage of it. We have nothing to say against the protest but why use our God and goddess’ name or involve and demean them.

According to the reports, the accused has now been granted bail. Leena Doley, SP Nagaon said that he has been given notice and released.

For the unversed, Nukkad Natak was performed on Saturday on the streets of Nagaon.

However, it didn’t go well with the sections of people as they opposed the idea of dressing up as deities for conveying an issue.

The act showed Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati riding a Royal Enfield bike and after the fuel of the bike ran out, the duo started arguing over the price hike and issues concerning the commoners. However, this innovative protest grabbed attention as many Hindu organizations and BJP party members threatened against such a poor portrayal of the deities.

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma’s wife, Riniki Bhuyan Sarma, filed a Rs 100 crore defamation suit against Delhi Deputy CM and Aam Aadmi Party leader Manish Sisodia on Tuesday over the PPE kit issue. According to the reports, the case is listed at the Civil Judge Court, Kamrup (Metro), Guwahati on June 22.

The Aam Aadmi Party leader Manish Sisodia had earlier on June 4 alleged that the Assam government had awarded contracts to the chief minister’s wife’s business and his son’s business partner. He claimed that when the Covid-19 outbreak hit the nation in 2020, they were provided to supply PPE kits over market costs.

Riniki Bhuyan’s advocate P Nayak stated that Manish Sisodia gave a political statement and dragged his client, forcing her to file an FIR against Delhi’s Deputy CM. He further stated that Riniki Bhuyan has not filed any tender for the process and she submitted the PPE kit as a donation under CSR activities.

Earlier this month, Sisodia claimed in a press conference that while the Assam government purchased personal protective equipment (PPE) kits from other businesses for Rs 600 per piece, Sarma gave contracts for the same to the businesses of his wife’s and son’s business partners for Rs 990 per piece taking advantage of the emergency situation.

Sisodia further disclosed that the Assam chief minister’s wife’s business does not even deal in medical supplies. The AAP leader continued that while the contract given to the firm of Sarma’s wife was cancelled as the company could not supply PPE kits, another supply order was given to the firm belonging to the business partners of his son at a rate of Rs 1,680 per kit.

In response to Manish Sisodia’s accusations, Himanta Biswa Sarma said his wife gave PPE kits to the government for free. When the entire nation was dealing with the deadliest pandemic in more than a century, Assam hardly had any PPE Kits available, said Himanta Biswa Sarma. He further stated that his wife took the courage of coming forward and donating around 1500 free of cost to the government to save lives. She didn’t take a single penny, Sarma wrote on Twitter.
