Is Assam turning into a police state?

July 8, 2011 at 5:26 am (Uncategorized)

It is worth mentioning here that in recent times the hills of the city are also becoming sites for huge land-grabbing by construction lobby and their Mafia associates. There are enough indications to suggest that the recent eviction drive was perhaps meant to clear the land of the poor so that it can be handed over to these Mafiosi. It is very clear that talks about ‘illegal encroachment of land by the labouring poor in the hills and its effect on ecology’ is nothing but a sham.”
