The recent shooting incident involving once again the Assam police and its administration at Mukroh situated under Laskeiñ Block of West Jaintia Hills district is a stark reminder that a small spark can break the peace.
The adamant attitude of the present State government to take head on Assam shows the lack of firmness, lack of political will and hard stance when it comes to asserting one’s right.
The State police has been shamed on various social media platforms which portrays a sad picture of the police department for not acting immediately but possibly certain political strings were being pulled.
We have a home minister who belongs to a ruling party with no firmness in his statement while his party colleagues are calling for a stronger stand.
How well the present government stays the course will be interesting to watch. However, prayer to the fallen victims and their remembrance is what we need to have in such trying times.
