Arabinda Rajkhowa's release, the new year's gift

Christmas was literally over but Santa Claus had kept a special gift for the people of Assam and the gift came through Assam’s Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi,s Government. A new year’s gift and a belated gift of Christmas, yes I mean to say about the great timing of Arabinda Rajkhowa's release on 1st January 2011.

The New Year’s messages is loud and clear to the people of Assam, Help the congress getting absolute majority in the forth coming Assam Assembly election, a far more better result than the recently concluded Bihar election. That is all about what Politics is and the people in general are always made to live in Political illusion. The moon is always beautiful but there is also the dark side of the moon that we tend to overlook.

ULFA“ has been the worst subject for the government whenever it had caused damage to their image and a pet subject when election knocks at the door. Well politicians know to lay and break their rules better than anyone.

So far so good, now the people of Assam can only hope that the government works sincerely towards solving the complex insurgency problem as a whole.We hope the new beginning will not illude the common people anymore.
