Arms and the Men Cox's Bazar to Fox Security of North Eastern India

Way back in 1797 when Captain Hiram Cox, an officer of the British East India Company, established a small settlement at Palonki some 150 km from Chittagong Port (now in Bangladesh), could never even imagine that it would turn into a bizarre bazaar for guns, goons and drugs after 218-years of his death.

Goons may not be a tradable commodity but in today notorious Cox’s Bazaar in Bangladesh, they are very much in demand to peddle drugs, arms and ammunitions to the vast North Eastern India and West Bengal. The Cox’s Bazaar is really foxing the security of India.

Since China is fishing in that region’s troubled water by saying “Bye-Bye” to old Nehruvian political era’s famous lyric “Hindi-Chini Bhai-Bhai,” the importance of Cox’s Bazaar has gone up manifold as a den of desperadoes capable of creating troubles in the North East India.

China’s foster son Pakistan is also finding Cox’s Bazaar very valuable for it to beef up extremism by supporting the insurgents of Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram and Nagaland. The notorious distinction of Cox’s Bazaar is for acting as a basket for dumping of China-made arms, drugs and sourcing place for gun-runners. No wonder, it is now the catchword for the underworld.

When BJP targeted to win Tripura as a prestige fight to comply with it’s vow to make India communist free, ruling CPI-M comes out with packages and schemes to allure the voters for their sustenance in electoral politics of the country. After losing foothold in West Bengal and tough challenge in Kerala for past five years, CPI-M has concentrated in Tripura. The political observers indicate, since no where CPI-M is in power, it is oblivious for Tripura government to provide financial support more to the party that enlarged the ambit of corruption in the state. The left front rule till 2008 since 1993 in Tripura was by large spotless and Manik Sarkar government had a pro people approach. Losing in power at West Bengal in 2011 assembly elections, CPI-M in Tripura started getting deteriorated and before 2013 party leaders and their committed bureaucrats charged with serious corruption allegations.

Misappropriation of MGNREGS fund, massive corruption in job distribution and party’s involvement in Non Banking Financial Company’s (NBFC) scam in Tripura damaged the fame and glory of communists. In the last election in 2013, the party in power directly used a section of state civil service officers and lower grade employees for manipulating the electioneering. Even CPI-M intruded their large number of cadres in opposition’s rally when Prime Minister or any other central leader of Congress came for addressing public rally. It made a sense of satisfaction to the opposition and it also confused the central leadership but it was not reflected in the voting.
