New Delhi: Voicing concern over exodus of people of North East from places like Bangalore, the CPM today said the Kokrajhar violence had "localised reasons" and all attempts to rouse feelings in other parts of the country over it should be firmly curbed.
"Immediate steps should be taken to assure the people of Northeastern origin of their safety and security wherever they are residing. The state governments and administration should take prompt measures for this," the CPM Politburo said in a statement in New Delhi.
It said the recent violence in the Bodoland territorial region in Assam "has localised reasons and any attempts to rouse feelings in other parts of the country should be firmly curbed".
Asking the people to "foil any move to disturb amity amongst the people and maintain unity and peace", it said the movement of North Eastern citizens from Bangalore and some other places were "sparked off by rumours or alleged threats".
A large number of panic-stricken people from the North East have fled Bangalore over the last two days after reports of attacks on some of them.
