In Assam every second day some boys and girls from various student organizations bring out processions demanding the ousting of Bangladeshis from Assam, sealing the Indo-Bangla border etc. But, these so called student leaders or different social organizations donot realize that the people of Assam are not aware at the grassroot level.
In order to prove my point let me site the example of Orissa. In Orissa, no student organization has to fight Bangladeshis or any infiltrators because the grassroot or Oriya villagers are aware. If any Oriya villager sees a Bangladeshi, they shoot the infiltrators with bows and arrows and never enter Orissa.
But in Assam once the procession or dharna is over, the participants return home after a nice tea party. The village Gaonburha, the police and the Panchayat gives shelter to Bangladeshis in Assam. So, what is the use of these processions and sit-in demonstrations. If Bangladeshis have to be thrown out of Assam, the villagers in the villages of Assam have to be aware, not the student leaders in the towns and cities.
Why don’t the student leaders invest their energy in empowering the villages of Assam ? The Gaon Panchayat, the Gaonburha should shoot down the moment a Bangladeshi comes to settle in their land. Why do we need Assam Police which is nothing but a band of ‘licensed goondas’ ? We shall protect our villages, our land, our forests, our rivers all by ourselves. The State politicians have failed us. The student leaders come up with dramas and only dramas from time to time infront of the camera.
Again, it is funny to see the Indian Army setting up camps in Tezpur to ward off the Chinese army, because all around they are surrounded by another set of foreigners called Bangladeshis. These are the ‘Silent Invaders’. Once Sonitpur becomes their stronghold like Kharupetia, Mangaldoi etc., the Indian Army will have to lend out their camps to Bangladesh Army and leave North-East forever.
