The Blood­lands of As­sam

India Today - - MAIL -

AU­GUST 13, 2012 Chief Min­is­ter Tarun Go­goi is an im­po­tent spec­ta­tor as Bodo ter­ror con­fronts rad­i­calised im­mi­grants. Over 70 peo­ple are dead and 400,000 have been dis­placed.

The blood­shed in As­sam is un­for­tu­nate, but the real prob­lem lies in the peren­nial poverty of the re­gion, which of­ten leads to fric­tion among dif­fer­ent eth­nic groups.
