Many issues confronting the north eastern region have been left unnoticed amid the heat and dust of the recent electioneering much to the surprise of the knowledgeable circle. 

Insurgency,  flood and erosion, cross border influx missed the poll manifestoed released by both Congress and BJP.

"I don't understand why these parties are averse to make these poll issues. Both parties are responsible " said Bondita Sailor,  a college teacher in Sivasagar. 

"We have concentrated only on the principal issue which is none other than the Citizenship (Amendment)  Bill.  We won't allow it, " said HP Saikia,  a Congress leader in Guwahati. 

Rhianna Das,  a local entrepreneur in Agartala deployed that the farmer issue ended with Rs 6000 through bank.  "Farmers'plight has no limit.  They required both short and long term measures.  But PM Modi pacified it only with Rs 6000 in 3 installments.  Disgusting indeed, " she said. 

Apart from that,  no party has promised to settle in insurgency issue in the entire issue.
