Peace In­ter­rupted

India Today - - MAIL -

Once again As­sam Chief Min­is­ter Tarun Go­goi has shown that he is in­ca­pable of en­sur­ing peace in the state (“Bodo, Im­mi­grant Vi­o­lence Shakes As­sam”, Au­gust 6). This pre­car­i­ous sit­u­a­tion needs im­me­di­ate at­ten­tion if in­no­cent civil­ians are to be saved. If the dis­place­ment of over 4,00,000 peo­ple is not enough to per­suade the gov­ern­ment to take ac­tion, then the fu­ture looks omi­nous. This di­vide be­tween the Bo­dos and the Mus­lims is fierce and shows no signs of ebbing. If any­thing, ten­sions will only rise, un­less Go­goi and his min­is­ters take the sit­u­a­tion se­ri­ously and pledge their sup­port to all the in­hab­i­tants, re­gard­less of their eth­nic­ity.
