But the Ministry of Emergency Management warned on Saturday that the possibility of another landslide near the first landslide site has grown.

Amit Shah Take Stock Of Assam, Late Night Meet, Visit Maa Kamakhya before kicking off Mizoram poll campaign
 Bhupen Goswami (17/10/2018)

 GUWAHATI :As Assamese and Bengali nationalist organizations are heading for a showdown, post Puja, as per scripted by the BJP in its just concluded State Executive at Majuli, the BJP National president Amit Shah descended late last night to take stock of the situation. This morning he left for Aizawal for booth level meeting in the Christian dominated state after marathon strategic meeting with the BJP and RSs honchos. The Bengali nationalist forces have been backed by the ruling party and the Assamese nationalist forces have been coming together with ULFA and Congress coming to that pole. Both the AASU and KMSS are playing a pivotal but rival role and both the groups are trying to bring others with them. On the one side all Bengali and non Assamsese speaking population and its organizations are with BJP. On the other hand Assamese nationalist organizations and the Congress are in one side. This is a peculiar position and two stalwarts of Assam’s political sky, Dr Nagen Saikia and three time Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi are of the opinion that this is going to be the darkest period of Assamsese in its history. The BJP has backed the Bengali organizations to the hilt and they are ganging up and organizing a mega rally on November 17. The official objective of the rally is to tell majority Assamese from one platform that the citizenship Amendment Bill is no threat to Assam and Hindu Bangladeshi shall come to India. But the rally has been viewed as direct provocation and challenge to the Assamese sub nationalism, which is represented by the likes of AASU and AGP. Even the Congress is also veering into this position. This November 17 Bengali rally has polarized Assam in two camps- Bengali and Assamese, something the BJP is experimenting with a clear road map. The BJP wants to taste its own strength with this stand. They feel that with a huge beneficiary section from the mainstream Assamese section, the Bengalis and non Assamese voters would place them around 25-30% per cent of voters in the upcoming Panchayat poll. The BJP has decided to alienate AGP in the Panchayat poll. If BJP does well and go past 30% vote share, the BJP may drop AGP permanently in the Lok Sabha but if it stays below 30% vote share in the Panchyat Poll, then the AGP alliance would be revived. But as of now the BJP won’t mind to see the back of the AGP. However Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president Amit Shah on Wednesday morning visited the Kamakhya Temple in Guwahati before proceeding to Mizoram to kick off the saffron party’s campaign for the November 28 Assembly elections in the State. In a tweet on his official Twitter handle, the BJP national president wrote: ‘Blessed to have prayed at the Maa Kamakhya devi shaktipeeth in Guwahati today on Durga Ashtami.Shah is scheduled to address the statewide booth level workers of Mizoram BJP unit at R Dengthuama Indoor Stadium in Aizawl on Wednesday. Amit Shah will also inaugurate the new state BJP office, Atal Bhavan in Aizawl later in the day. The BJP national president will also induct Dr Buddha Dhan Chakma, a ruling Congress legislator who resigned from the State Assembly on Tuesday at the booth level workers meeting in the presence of BJP election in charge for Mizoram and Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, Nagaland Deputy Chief Minister Y Patton and several other leaders from the BJP ruled states of the Northeast are expected to attend the meeting in Aizawl on Wednesday. Mizoram is the only state in the entire Northeast where Congress is still holding the reins of power. The BJP is trying hard to make inroads in Mizoram with this election for the 40-member Legislative Assembly slated for November 28 next.’

 GUWAHATI :The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), hoping to nail its presence in Northeast state Mizoram, has announced that it will begin its poll campaign in the state on October 17.The BJP, after it created history in Assam and Manipur in last elections, is making all-out efforts to recreate the historic moment in Mizoram too. Also Read | Dilip Kumar being treated for recurrent pneumonia discharged from hospital Starting the BJP poll campaign in the state on October 17, BJP president Amit Shah will inaugurate the party office at Aizawl. On the same day, Shah will also address booth-level workers on poll preparation. Around 1500 booth-level workers are expected to attend the meeting. Assembly elections will be held in the state on November 28. The BJP has decided to contest the elections on its own and not form a pre-poll alliance with any party. Party sources, however, said that it can form an alliance in case it failed to get enough seats to form the government. “Amit Shah will inaugurate the party office in Aizwal. He will address booth-level party workers. Around 15,000 booth level workers from across the state will attend the meeting. A gathering of 15,000 workers is considered huge in Mizoram.” BJP, which is currently ruling Assam, Tripura, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh and supports coalition governments in Meghalaya and Nagaland, has decided to go it alone in the Mizoram polls and plans to contest all the 40 seats there. The party has almost finalised all its candidates. Meanwhile, there has been a realignment of forces with three regional parties –– the People’s Represent for Identity and Status of Mizoram (PRISM), Mizoram Chhantu Pawl (MCP) and Save Mizoram Front and Operation Mizoram –– forging a pre-poll electoral alliance. The opposition Mizo National Front (MNF) which is a member of the BJP-floated platform of non-Congress parties –– the North East Democratic Alliance –– has announced that it will not have any electoral understanding or seat-sharing arrangement with the BJP.

Chinese soldiers cross LAC into Arunachal Pradesh, retreat after Indian Army intervenes

 GUWAHATI : A group of Chinese Army personnel briefly came to the Indian side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Arunachal Pradesh's Dibang Valley in July but returned after Indian security personnel objected to it, official sources said. Troops of China’s People Liberation Army (PLA) crossed the Line of Actual Control (LAC) into India in the first week of October in the Arunachal Sector. However, the Chinese soldiers returned after the Indian Army conveyed to them that they were on the Indian side of the LAC. According to Times Now channel, the troops — around 11 Chinese PLA men dressed in camouflaged Army fatigues — were spotted in upper Dibang in Arunachal Pradesh. They were spotted by local villagers who had gone out hunting. The locals then clicked photographs of the intrusion and alerted the Army and local administration. It is believed that the intrusion took place about five-six days ago. The troops were about one km inside the Indian territory. This is not the first time that PLA troops have entered inside the Indian territory. Intrusions along the LAC are a regular occurrence along the de-facto boundary between India and China. China, however, refuses to accept that Arunachal Pradesh is an Indian territory and instead, continued to refer to the state and southern Tibet. The intrusion has surfaced at a time when India and China have joined hands to train Afghan diplomats in New Delhi. The relations between the two countries have been going through a rough patch post the 2017 Doklam standoff, wherein Chinese troops were spotted constructing a road inside the Indian territory in Doklam in June 2017. They were apprehended by Indian troops and the standoff continued till August 28 after a diplomatic intervention. The Arunachal MP Ninong Ering already shot off a letter to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi Expressing concern demanding immediate intervention.Officials said such transgressions are not unusual as there were varying perceptions of the LAC by both China and India. India regularly takes up all such incidents at the appropriate level with Chinese authorities. India and China share a nearly 4,000-km-long border. The number of "transgressions" by the Chinese Army into the Indian territory rose to 426 in 2017 from the 273 in 2016, according to official figures. Indian and Chinese troops were locked in a 73 -day standoff in Doklam last year. The face-off had ended on August 28 last year.

 GUWAHATI : Two years into alliance, BJP-AGP ties in Assam shows signs of strain.There has been a disagreement between the two parties over the proposed amendment to the Citizenship Act to grant citizenship to religious minorities from neighbouring countries.Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)alliance are not lasting for long limes.“We came together before the assembly election with the sole intention of ending 15 years of Congress misrule. But we won’t compromise on our ideals and goals, which are for the greater interest of Assam and Assamese people,” said AGP president cum Assam Minister Atul Bora.Both the parties had joined hands prior to the assembly polls in 2016. Informing about the move, AGP president and agriculture minister Atul Bora said that he did not want power at the cost of indigenous people of the state.In a setback to the Bharatiya Janata Party in Assam, its ally the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) on Sunday decided to fight the upcoming panchayat and Lok Sabha elections alone. Both the parties had joined hands prior to the assembly polls in 2016. Informing about the move, AGP president and agriculture minister Atul Bora told the Times of India that he did not want power at the cost of indigenous people of the state. “We have decided to contest the Lok Sabha election if BJP continues to support the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill,” the minister said. The Centre has been pushing for the Citizenship Bill which seeks to redefine illegal migrants. If passed, the act will provide citizenship to only those illegal migrants who are of Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Parsi or Christian ancestry. The bill does not have any provision for Muslims — which is why the bill has been opposed by many regional parties including AGP.The AGP has in the past termed the bill as ‘anti-Assam’. The TOI report quoted AGP founder-president Prafulla Kumar Mahanta as saying that a party that supports the bill is “against the indigenous people of Assam”. The BJP’s ally in Assam has been very vocal about their stand and have shot multiple warnings against the bill in the past few months.“Currently, we are a part of the BJP led Assam government. If Centre passes the Citizen (Amendment) Bill, then we will break our alliance with the state government,” he had told Media Persons.A party that favours the bill is against the indigenous people of Assam. We have to sever ties with them,” AGP founder-president Prafulla Kumar Mahanta said. The two two parties had come together to form the government with support from Bodoland People’s Front in 2016.
Assam BJP state Executive at Majuli : NRC Denounced, BJP Blows War Bugle
 Bhupen Goswami (15/10/2018)

 GUWAHATI : The BJP has charted the political road map of Assam for next 2 years and decided to go solo, bank on non Assamese voters and divide mainstream Assamese. It has decided to denounce the NRC, embrace controversial Citizenship bill and use upcoming Panchayat Poll as Quarter Final to check the ground reality The BJP has decided to take on the popular anger against the Citizenship bill head on and check how much they are going to cede ground base in the upcoming Panchayat Poll where they will go in alone. The Panchayat poll will take place before January 15 next year and that will give them a real feedback of the ground and based on the result they will take the corrective measures for the March-April general Election. If in the General Election, BJP wins more than 7 seats in Assam, they will harden the Citizenship Act and if not they will keep a Assam centric Safeguard in the Act like the Clause 6 and clause 6A of the present Citizenship Act to woo Assam voters in the next Assembly election. Moreover around the Panchayat poll, a Home Ministry driven peace treaty with the ULFA (Pro talk) group would occur, which is in the final stage of the negotiation, where indigenous people of Assam would be safeguarded. Armed with this strategy, the BJP has charted the road map for Assam and they have got ready to drop AGP and go all alone. This was decided in the BJP state Executive at Majuli, concluded yesterday. The BJP feels that Bengali and non Assamese votes will give them around 25% of vote share and another 10% beneficiary votes from the mainstream Assamese will sail them through in the Panchayat Poll. This new calculation is a brave one and in the next few months it would be unleashed in great force upon Assam, dividing the Assamese and the pressure groups like AASU, KMSS, AJYCP will be taken on or sidelined or compromised. An weak unaligned AGP is good for the BJP as the anti BJP votes would be split between AGP and Congress.

But she was seen doing social dos and commercial engagements all over India in the past one month which has raised eyebrows not only amongst the sports enthusiasts, journalists and officials but also her die-hard fans.The Athletic Federation of India (AFI) is unhappy over athlete Hima das not resuming her training at NIS Patiala and feels that this has seriously jeopardized her chances at Tokyo Olympic. The AFI president Adile Sumariwalla have got in touch with Assam Government officials and have expressed displeasure that Hima das has been wasting time in non sporting events. All other successful Indian athletes of Asian games , after taking a break from the schedule spent some time with the near and dear ones and usual round of felicitations and celebrations, have resumed their training at Patiala under the watchful guidance of their respective coach. The AFI is worried over the fact that she is the only world champion at this moment for India in athletic and is a great prospect considering the fact that she is just 18 and have shown tremendous progress over the past 16 months. But what has worried the AFI is the continuous refusal of Hima to resume training one some or some pretext. What has worried more is the wobbling focus of Hima over her career as she seems to be more interested in her non sporting events. After a grand welcome to Assam, she was expected to return after a week of stay at her village. But she was seen doing social dos and commercial engagements all over India in the past one month which has raised eyebrows not only amongst the sports enthusiasts, journalists and officials but also her diehard fans. AFI president Adile raised the matter with Assam Sorts and Youth Welfare Council Member Secretary Lakhya Konwar. Confirming this development, Mr Konwar said that Hima has been peeruaded to return and resume training from October 18. In between she has collected her Arjun medal, a job of HR Executive with the Indian Oil Corporation(IOC), couple of flats gifted by the real estate developers in Assam and a contract with the sports giant Adidas which has been hailed by her fans. The hysteria around her only confirms that she is emerging as first super star outside the cricket in recent years as she has donned cover of several glossy magazines also, something the hardcore sports loathing as they feel that with more hard work, she is destined for greater heights. The AFI consider her a Tokyo Olympic prospect. But her present timings and the standard of the Olympic besides lack of preparation times has forced AFI to seek intervention of Assam Government. “This is one of the reason Indian athletes d not do well in Olympics” wrote Mr Adille in his messages to Assam Government. Hima’s personal coach Nipon Das has also been approached and warned to send his ward back to the training. But Hima is taking it easy and have asked for a 45 day break before resuming the rigour of training. At this moment, Him is spending time at Guwahati with light exercise to maintain her fitness.

 GUWAHATI : World's largest river island Majuli Making Tradition in Assam and Heritage Stature of Sri SSri Samaguri Satra, Satradhikar Koshkanta Dev Goswami No More.Renowned mask craftsmen and Satradhikar (Head of the Satra) of Chamuguri Satra, Koshkanta Dev Goswami breathed his last at 2 am on Saturday due of senile. He was 89 years old.Koshkanta Dev Goswami, through his mask craftsmanship kept alive the age old tradition of Assam. The death of the 2003 Sangeet Natak Akademi Awaree’s death is not only considered a great loss for Majuli but the entire state.Mention here that The use of masks has been prevalent since the primitive age in Assam along with entire world. The urge for mask making can be seen in a bid to depict the shape of a horrifying object on an earthen pitcher with lime marks beside a pumpkin creeper or on an effigy made of straw to scare away birds and insects in the paddy fields. Like the Bhakti movement initiated by the great Guru Srimanta Sankardeva formed the Assamese race through songs, dramas, musical instruments, Bhaonas, Nam- Kirtan etc. Majuli flourished culturally after the arrival of Srimanta Sankaradeva there and observed the legacy of socio-cultural reformations of Neo- Vaisnavism. The island has been centre of Neo Vaishnavaite experimentations, initiated around 15th century by Srimanta Sankaradeva as establishment of Belguri Dhuwahat Satra in west Majuli, first satra in Majuli for preaching of Eksaran Naam Dhrama or preaching names of Supreme God. After that sixty five Satra were established, although not all Satras were successful in keeping this tradition alive.Foreign visitors particularly get mesmerised seeing the perfect craftsmanship involved in this art form. Two visitors from France and Israel once spent a few months with me to learn this craft. Apart from India, we receive visitors from all over the world— United States, England, France, Germany, Japan, Australia, Ghana, Switzerland, Poland and other countries. The use of traditional materials in the making of masks such as— bamboo, cane, cow dung, jute, potter’s clay, and muslin cloth etc. give it a unique flavour. This often keeps the visitors wondering at the inventiveness displayed during mask making.
