In Assam, Power Maddens

It is amusing to see note that Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma thinks that the NDFB has hoisted Pakistani flag in Udalguri. I hope he knows that as soon as this act was done, the flag hoisting was reported in Pakistani media. This proves that the Muslim terrorists have an organised network from Assam to Pakistan. And the ministers of Assam are always there to cover up their crimes because of vote-bank politics.

No one should dare to blame the native tribals. Our Bodo brothers have not set up villge after village in Bangladesh. It is the Bangladehis who have swarmed all our forests and fields. The state govt as well as the central govt should very well know that.

The govt wants to blame NDFB for everything, but not itself for allowing illegal migrants to settle and murder the natives. Blaming militants for everything is the easiest thing, but let me tell you that the first attack was from immigrant Muslims. It was well planned. It started just after they celebrated their festival in peace. They were planning for 'Jihad' after Id and disrupted Puja celebrations by the ethnic cleansing of the native tribals.

Morever, the remarks of CM Tarun Gogoi are weird. When he says that it is the flag of Id, this can be the greatest joke in the present times.

We can only request our hopeless ministers to keep their mouth shut or use the words "No comments" when they have nothing useful to say in such situations. They only make clowns of themselves by speaking out such ridiculous comments.

We all know of the proverb, "Power Corrupts". In Assam, we can add another proverb for the likes of Gogoi and Sarma, "POWER MADDENS". Assamese politicians have been rendered mad by political power.
