NEW DELHI: Three decades ago, Assam was put under President’s Rule as law and order deteriorated due to violence unleashed by the insurgent group ULFA. For the first time, the Centre sent the army into the state for counter-insurgency operations. Businesses suffered as did the people and there was an overall environment of fear. In this episode of ‘Simply Nitin’, StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale, who reported from Assam for over two decades, has seen the bloodiest phase of the insurgency unfold and has written a book titled ‘Hot Brew’ on it, recounts what led to the dismissal of Prafulla Kumar Mahanta’s government that had come to power on a popular mandate.
