Blasts in Assam – same politics . same apathy for citizens

The Indian Government is a complete failure when it comes to Internal national security!  Yesterday, in as many as 11 bomb blasts 48 people were killed and 300 injured in Assam!  In Guwahati (Ganeshguri area, Panbazar, Fancy Bazar and Paltan Bazar) alone 25 people were killed at least!  11 people were killed in three explosions in Kokrajhar district, 12 in Barpeta district.

All the blasts happened within an hour and began around 11.20 am.

While so many lives were lost, the politicians use the same platitudes:

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said: “This is an act of cowardice and we shall deal with the situation firmly.  A red alert has been sounded across the state. It is a designed and planned attack carried out to spread terror,” he said.

Same words, same sentences that one has been hearing since the 1980s!  No change.  Everything happens after the fact.

While the Minister of State for Home Shakeel Ahmad was busy playing politics with Raj Thackeray in mind, LK Advani took a shot at another main issue in Assam – and probably one of the reasons for such violence in Assam – … the Bangladeshi illegal immigrants.  I do not see any peace happening in many parts of the country until the Central and State Governments become more serious about the rights of Indians and the own people.
