Why are we neglecting our north-eastern states?The newspapers of the north-east are giving this new at the top of the first page. This has been the main topic for discussion in the entire region for the last one month or so. And why not? The longest bridge of Asia, Sadia-Dhola bridge, would bring the entire north-east much closer to other parts of India. This pride of India would definitely bring economic prosperity in the region. It will strengthen the bond between north-east people and people of other parts of the country. Indian armed forces would be able to move much more quickly due to this bridge. This bridge is a real matter for rejoice and discussion.
I raised the issue of inauguration of Sadia-Dhola bridge (Bhupen Hazarika setu) in a thread. I tried to discuss the benefits of north-eastern states because of this largest bridge of Asia. However, this thread has been deleted with a cryptic comment: 'Not worthy of a discussion'.
'Not worthy of a discussion'? Does it imply that welfare of the beautiful people of the beautiful north-eastern states is not worthy of a discussion?
Members may kindly comment whether we are neglecting our north-eastern brethren, or not. Do you think benefits of north-eastern people are not worthy of discussion?
