A local TV journalist is being detained for 12 months in Manipur by the state government invoking provisions of a preventive detention law, the National Security Act 1980, NSA, for his expletives filled criticism of the BJP led state government, the state’s Chief Minister, N Biren Singh, the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and the RSS posted on social media.

 

Considering, Kishorchandra Wangkhem’s similar misadventure where he heaped sharp anti-BJP and anti-RSS criticism in a non-journalistic fashion, landing him in jail under Section 500/500 (2) of the IPC, for the first time in August this year and the fact that he dared the state government to apprehend him again, his arrest was not surprising at all.

On April 7, 1979 when the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) took birth at the historic Rong Ghor of ancient Ahom Kings at Rangpur near Sivsagar, people took it just as a stray political development not a development to be alarmed of.

But they soon realized, a hydra-headed monster has been born in Assam whose eradication proved to be rather a very difficult task even for the Indian Army. Playing hide and seek with rise and fall for 39-years, the ULFA continues to hold Assam at ransom.
