ASSAM-Centre s Game in Bodoland Agitation

ASSAM-Centre s Game in Bodoland Agitation

ASSAM Centre's Game in Bodoland Agitation Evidence now available from different sources shows the extent to which institutions charged with maintaining peace and order have been deliberately suborned by the central government to further its machinations against non-Congress(I) state governments IF there is even a modicuia of truth in the various allegations made by spokespersons on behalf of the government of Assam, from the chief minister downwards, about the dubious role of some central intelligence agencies in the ongoing 'Bodoland' agitation by the All Bodo Students Union headed by Upendranath Brahma (ABSU-UB), the whole situation calls for the sharpest condemnation. For what chief minister Mahanta and others in his government have been saying is simply this: that the government of India itself has not merely encouraged the 'Bodolund' agitation, but assisted the agitation actively by providing materiel and expertise of the kind generally provided to the sappers and miners of the Indian army to the ABSU-UB agita- tionists. In other words, the actual responsibility for the continued killings, bomb blastings, and other acts of sabotage going on in Assam has to be laid at the door of the government of India itself.
