Invasion of illegal migrants in Assam

This article was published in "The Asian Age" on the Independence day , 15th August, 2012. Written by S.K. Sinha, ex-governor of Assam, the articles shows the depth of the Illegal migration problem in Assam. Sinha clearly termed the Illegal migration as a concern of national security. The very day of publication of this article, the riots related to illegal migration in Assam took a new turn, forcing thousands of people living in various cities of India to leave their education and profession and come back to their homes. This is not only a big loss to the people of Assam, but also a bigger loss to the country. We are losing gorund of both National Security and National Integrity due to some un-wanted foreigners in our own country. Today we are homeless at our own country and the government is not there to support the true citizens of the country but the illegal migrant who are slowly invading the region and changing the complete demography of the beautiful Brahmaputra valley. If we keep on playing these politics only on votebank perspective, the day is not far when the whole India will face another invasion, as Indian history witnessed every few cenvturies. The differnce will be, the invasion will be on eastern forntier instead of the western frontier all the time.

This land, politically designated as North-East India, is now about to become the savior to the electricity starving future super power of the world, India. Is the dream that was harnessed even back in 1950s by the Indian government going to be fulfilled? Is the mega dam under construction on the Lower Subansiri on Assam-Arunachal Pradesh a fulfillment of that dream? How will science handle the power of Nature and cultural balance of local society with same hand? Will this dream be a curse or blessing to Assam and North-Eastern states of India?
