Sept 23, 2010. All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary Rahul Gandhi comes to Guwahati campus of IIT and makes a statement, “Construction of big dams in the North East is not ‘anti-people’and the concern of the common man is being given top priority.” Three ancient tribes of the two states will suffer the most-- the Adis, the Misings and the Deuris. It seems Rahul Gandhi has not done his home work well like most politicians in India or it might be because Assam has the same part in power as at the Centre. A flashback for Rahul Gandhi. August 26, 2010. The same person went to Niyamgiri in Orissa and assured the Dongria Kondh tribe saying, “I am your soldier.” Here the self-proclaimed ‘aam aadmi ka sipahi’ is posing as the voice of the tribal community which is firm on not letting Vedanta Resources mine bauxite in the Niyamgiri. Is it because the BJD is the party in power in Orissa? Rahul Gandhi must have calculated the protesting communities as the most viable vote-bank for the Congress in Orissa at the moment. Jammu & Kashmir, India’s only Muslim majority state (according to the demography of 1947, which is same for the state till date), was the first state in India to ban cow slaughter in India with due respect to article 48 of the Constitution of India. Such was the heart and mind of a Kashmiri in the 1950s. And look at Kashmir today. The series of wrong policies by a certain group of people in sitting in the North Block of Delhi has made what Kashmir is today. If the Government of India goes on with its shortsighted strategies of the so called ‘development’, in the coming decades it will make a Kashmir of Arunachal Pradesh too, not to speak of Assam.
