By DeshGujarat News, Vadodara, 18 August 2012
Around two thousand youths from North East today left Gujarat in Okha Dwarka Gauhati train from Vadodara railway station at around 11.45 pm on Friday.
Leaders of BJP including local Member of parliament were present at the railway station. The BJP leaders assured total safety of north east people in Gujarat and requested them not to leave the state. To this the North East youths replied that they feel completely safe in Gujarat, and they were leaving the state only because their parents back home were worrying about them and wanting them to come back as earliest as possible.
“We are totally safe in Gujarat, and Gujarat is the safest place in the country for us, but our parents have no idea about Gujarat, for them Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka everything is same. As they are worried and in shock due to rumors, we are unable to communicate them over phone properly that we are safe in Gujarat, therefore we need to move from here and first meet our parents back at home. Once we convince them, stay with them, and once they come out from shock we would return here,” said Dorji, a youth who works in private company in south Gujarat.
“As other youths from different parts of the country are returning back to my village in Assam, my parents too want me to come back immediately. There’s no safety issue here, but others are returning so me too doing same,” said a student from Assam who didn’t want to be identified.
At Vadodara railway station, large number of RSS workers were present. They distributed food packets among the north east citizens. ABVP workers and MS University leaders were also present on the railway station.
According to one of the north east youths, they had all gathered here from all over Gujarat. A decision to leave the state in same train was made through SMS and phone calls.
