Enactment of a tough law
Frequent Bandhs in Assam paralyze the lives of the common people. It seems as if a parallel government is functioning in Assam. What pains us is the reign of terror let loose by some of the members of the 'Bandh' organizers. Doctors going to attend emergency duty in the Hospital are not spared too by the hooligans. Hopefully, all the culprits who attacked and injured the Doctor –Couple at Digboi besides vandalizing their car on February 9 would soon be caught. Some miscreants smashed the glasses of trucks beating up the truck driver and an auto-rickshaw driver. These incidents speak volume of the jungle-raj that prevails in Assam despite a rosy picture projected by the state ruling dispensation .Enactment of a tough law is the need of the hour with provisions not only to punish the culprits with rigorous imprisonment but also to make them (miscreants), make good the loss of the properties they destroy. Many like to say that we are the inhabitants of 'Bandh Pradesh'.
