Abstract

Assam and its indigenous people are today confronted by an unprecedent crisis in as much as the demographic avalanche from Bangladesh continues to overwhelm the entire State. The unabated infiltration from Bangladesh is not a new phenomenon. It has a long history, first engineered by colonial rulers and subsequently promoted by fundamentalist forces, aided by political brokers. Assam's electoral rolls are flooded with the names of hundreds of thousand of Bangladeshi infiltrators. More opportunities for illegal migrants to step in are the making and the conspirators are trying to create a civil war-like situation in Assam. Vote-bank politics have dominated the political scene in Assam since independence. The future of this northeastern State depends on how far this unholy development and other factors detailed in the book can be neutralized. - (GL)
