100-Word Edit: PM Modi tweets for Assam without Internet
Entire North East is on the edge. Assam and Tripura are burning over Citizenship Amendment Bill. Assam CM’s house attacked; Ministers bear the brunt. Violence and arson continue. Situation is going from bad to worse.
While Internet remains suspended in 10 districts of Assam, PM Narendra Modi tweeted to assure the Assamese saying they have nothing to worry and their rights, identity and culture will be protected.
However, whether PM’s appeal will reach the people or not, remains unclear in the wake of restrictions on Internet. Hopefully, the government takes steps to spread PM’s word among common people in Assam.
