Asomiyas: Time to ponder……!

With the congress back in power, it must be party time in those camps
that intend to contribute their share towards making Assam apart of
Bangladesh. However , Mr. Tarun Gogai seems to have taken a bold stand
in regards to the AUDF. With the passage of time , will his stand dilute?
One can not so easily forget the Congress stand on the IM(DT) Act which
enabled countless Bangladeshis to settle in Asom .Our secular politicians
have always utilized Bangladeshis as vote banks, thereby endangering the
future of our own land. The pace at which the infiltrators are filling up
our towns and cities , one wonders what would be the fate of Asom in the
next few years. Or , can we remain Asomiyas when we exercise our
franchise in the next Assembly election ? It is time to ponder…!
