Why always the public has to suffer?? After all the public has to suffer the consequences of the bandhs. India, in real sense has never been a friend of Dimaraji ( read Hirimba Kingdom and Senapati Tularam Country till 1854). They are just carrying foward the legacy of the British Imperialist! Arm struggle don't give long term peace but as BHAGAT SINGH said "Bhehro ko sunane ke liye Dhamake ka zarurat hota hai". I think it is time they treat the denizens of Dimaraji as it's equal citizen. Some people questioned why Dima Hasao?? Nobody question why Assam??? They forgot that half the territory of present Assam belonged to the Hirimba Kingdom , which fell to British rule much after Ahom kingdom was occupied by British. Juthai !
