The Congress government led by Tarun Gagoi is squarely responsible for the ongoing turmoil in Assam. The spate of tragedy could have been averted had the police taken a quick action against the miscreants who ignited the trouble on July 6. The blatant statement made by a Bodo leader Kampa Borgoyri, that the Muslims who have fled their homes shall not be allowed to return is reprehensible. The administration should send a strong message that pursuance for a separate land could not be tolerated at the cost of an ‘ethnic cleansing’.
