North East is ignored very much by the rest of the India, No one cares about ‘The Seven Sisters’. Even the media dosen’t report the events happening in The North East. I am really sorry to say this but the way i see it we have been ignoring every single problem of the North East. Today we are gonna know some facts and understand why we should start caring about North East.
And the problems starts in 1947
Look at the map above this is a serious joke to India done by the Brits while leaving India, This doodle is made by a person named Radcliffe. Who came to India on 8th july 1947 who knew nothing about India and yet he was made in-charge of India’s partition !
Illigal Immigration problem of North East
Let’s talk about East Pakistan ( Now its Bangladesh). अतिथि देवो भवः means guest is god, We have always belived in this saying thats why India became home to 10 million Bangladeshi refugees, Indian soldiers have fouught and died for Bangladesh’s liberation, But today, Illegal Immigration has became a serious problem for entire North East.
4156 Kms thats how long is India’s border with Bangladesh and its very difficult for the border control to control such a huge border. People from Tripura says that how a Bangladeshi can just cross the border and get an Adhaar card mader for just ₹400. India already has a population problem can we afford this illegal immigrants ? And the scariest part of this illegal immigrants is that they even managed to get a voter id card because of some Vote hungry politicians and cast their votes at Indian elections.
But please don’t get us wrong we feel Bangladesh is a good friend. Recently a jawan lost his arm because 25 smugglers threw a grenade at him and we can not ignore all of this !
But media won’t show you all of this! because it dosen’t matter to them. The North East is the real minority and their problems are not glamorus enough showing them dosen’t “SELL” The news !
Seven Sisters need our attention
Our Seven sisters need our attention because basic things like transportation is still a problem. This is the Bogibeel Bridge in the image above is in Assam and it connects lower and upper Assam across the Brahmaputra river and cuts travel time drastically (40 hours to just 15 hours) for people in Assam and in Arunachal Pradesh, This bridge was promised to the people in 1985 and it was completed in 2018 (33 years to complete a 5 km long bridge) Really ?
But our media won’t show you all of this, Because it dosen’t matter Right! Bad infrastructures, No help in disasters, No identity! Don’t you think its wrong and nobody talking about this. But why i am say all of this ? Because i want you to know how special The North East is!
