    Blow To Insurgency

    In a major success on part of the government, the insurgency in Northeast has faced a big blow in the first month of 2020. It has been recognized as one of the major achievement of the Bharatiya Janata Party-led state government ahead of the 2021 State Assembly Elections.

    The first blow was the joining of the Saoraigwra faction of National Democratic Front of Boroland in the peace talk process with the government. It was the third and the last faction of the rebel group. Joining the group in the talk process has been seen as an initiative to solve the Bodoland issue.

    On January 16th, 2020, the NDFB-S agreed to abjure violence and join the peace talks. B Saoraigwra, 27 other cadres including NDFB general secretary B R Feranga and its finance secretary B Dwmwilu are a part of the group who have jointly decided to join the peace talks.

    Another success of the government is to bring a total of 644 rebels belonging to eight insurgent groups to the mainstream. The militants laid down their arms in Guwahati on Thursday. It is one of the largest surrender of militants in recent times.

    The members of the insurgent groups United Liberation Front of Assam (50), Saoraigwra faction of National Democratic Front of Boroland (NDFB-S) (8), Rabha National Liberation Front (13), Communist Party of India-Maoist (1), National Santhal Liberation Army (87), Adivasi Dragon Fighter (178) and National Liberation Front of Bengalis (301) and Kamtapur Liberation Organisation (6) surrendered with 177 arms in Guwahati.

    On the other hand, M Batha alias Binod Mushahary and B Bidai alias Bishnu Basumatary, two top leaders of the NDFB-S came over the ground on Wednesday. This comes a week after the NDFB-S signed the Suspension of Operations (SoO) agreement and agreed to abjure violence and join the peace talks.

    January has been an important month for the state and the Assam Police. Such a huge massive swap in the insurgency in the Northeast is a huge achievement for the government. With this, BJP has got another tool to fight the next election.
