Why such incidents are going on and on in Assam? Last year 2008 on the month of Oct. there was also an information that Pakistani flag was hoisted in one of the Northern districts of Assam (Darrang/Udalguri), on the process there was communal riot where hundreds of innocent people lost their lives and scores became homeless.what does Govt doing? Is honorable chief minister sleeping? The case should be probed immediately and stringent action should be taken against the culprit.Measures should be taken to prevent such shameful incidents.Its India not Pakistan to hoist Pakistani flag. Lets do it together to avoid this kind of ridiculous incident.

These incidents are going on in Assam because the natives are addicted to rice beer and other alcoholic drinks.
