Barak Democratic Front (BDF) President Pradip Dutta Roy has issued an ultimatum of 48 hours to the district authority to replace the government advertisement carrying an Assamese script with a Bengali one.

A government hoarding featuring PM Narendra Modi with messages regarding the COVID vaccination is installed at a highly visible place in the Meherpur Petrol Pump.

This comes after series of controversy regarding Assamese language government banners in Silchar and following retaliation in other parts of the state.

Pradip Dutta Roy, the BDF founder reacting regarding the poster said, “I am deeply saddened and shocked to see another banner of Government of India in Assamese Language, even after so many protests, hustles, and bustles.”

The chief conveyor of BDF, advocate Dutta Roy gave an ultimatum of 48 hours to the district administration to remove the banner featuring only Assamese Language, saying that the poster violates The Assam Official Language (Amendment) Act, 1961.
