ASSAM-Congress Returns to Brahmaputra Valley

ASSAM Congress Returns to Brahmaputra Valley Kamarupee Rejected five years ago as a party hostile to the Assamese-speaking people of the Brahmaputra valley, the Congress(I) has scored notable triumphs this time in precisely these areas where also the ULFA writ runs unchallenged. The inference that the party has struck a deal with the ULFA is inescapable.

ASSAM-Politics of Peaceful Poll

objective of a Nehruvian model of (bourgeois- capitalist) growth, never failing to link these immediate and partial actions with the long-term objective of social transformation, in both material and cultural terms, (iii) Strengthening the linkage between the national struggles in India with all similar strivings in other parts of the world, including the actions of the radical forces in the developed, neo-colonialist, countries, (iv) And, finally, an important part of this programme will be a sharper definition of the socialist perspective itself

Assassination and After in North-East

North-East Kamarupee With the stakes in the present elections, especially those to the State assembly, being very high, and with every section of the people very highly politicised, it is unlikely that the 'sympathy vote' will be a major factor in Assam.

ASSAM-Appropriating Sri Sankaradeva

Appropriating Sri Sankaradeva Kamarupee Why this desperate attempt by the pan-Indian cultural establishment to 'lndianise' Sri Sankaradeva, a figure considered by the Assamese people as the quintessential symbol of Assamese nationality?

NAGALAND-Passing of Phizo

Passing of Phizo Kamarupee While the state of Nag al and is the greatest monument to Phizo, the reassertion of tribalism in Nagaland politics has also to be seen as arising out of Phizo's own character and work.

ASSAM- AGP Facing Multiple Challenges

AGP Facing Multiple Challenges THE recent decision of the All-Assam Students' Union (AASU) to resume 'non- cooperation' with the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) ministers and legislators (though not with the government as such) has to be seen in the context of the sharp deterioration in the relations between the AASU and the political party it gave birth to. The latest public manifestation of such deterioration was the eleven-hour Assam bandh called by AASU on October 20. The bandh, to no one's surprise, was a total success in the Brahmaputra valley districts. In the Barak valley districts and the two autonomous hill districts the bandh call had no impact, again to no one's surprise. The pattern is all too familiar, having been well established in the course of the six-year long anti- foreigner agitation and in fact going farther back in time, underlining once again the inescapable fact that on virtually every important or even unimportant issue, public opinion in the Brahmaputra valley and the Barak valley has been sharply divergent.

Congress (I) Chief Minister s Indictment of Army

The memorandum submitted to the home minister on behalf of the council of ministers of the government of Manipur signed by chief minister Rishing Keishing is a most unusual document in that the indictment of the Assam Rifles has been made not by misguided liberals or by sympathisers of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland, but by a wing of the establishment itself If the Manipur chief minister accuses the Assam Rifles of "indulging in extremely despicable behaviour" it can only mean that the arrangements between the leaderships in the peripheries of the Indian state and the centre which had made it possible for such atrocities to be overlooked have begun to break down.
