A massive blueprint is underway to firmly deal with NDFB-S after the insurgent outfit unleashed a reign of terror by killing at least 70 people in Kokrajhar and Sonitpur districts on Tuesday.
Union home minister Rajnath Singh is averse to hold talks with the senseless outfit saying that conscience does not allow anybody to hold talks. The militant outfits, often, resort to talks tactic to get rid of an intensive pressure in the form of combing operation. But this time it’s a straight NO.
The Centre is believed to have received the much-needed consent from Bhutan to go for an operation all clear like offensive on the soil of the Himalayan kingdom. The consent was quick after the Union home minister talked to minister of external affairs Sushma Swaraj. Towards the fag-end of 2005, the Atal Bihar Vajpayee government launched the operation all clear in Bhutan where a circle of top ULFA, NDFB and KLO leaders were captured.
Moreover, the authorities have sealed the Indo-Bhutan border which has been their safe escape route for the last couple of years. Security forces start concentrating on the inaccessible areas along the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh so that the militants can’t make it yet another reliable escape route to the neighboring state.
These are apart from the widespread anger and resentment of the common people who are no longer prepared to tolerate so much torture and harassment by the militant outfit.
Same anger and resentment is likely to be capitalized on other militant outfits who have been striking at regular intervals only to make their presence felt. Doesn’t these suggest an end of the road for NDFB-S?
