Migration in Assam: A Political Review

Tridib Bharali.

Abstract
Migration is the movement of people from one place to another with the intentions of settling permanently or
temporarily in a new location. Being a worldwide phenomenon, India is also not an exception in this regard. In
India’s North-East it was the Britishers who encouraged movement of settlers in Assam and Bengal for
numerous reasons. Subsequently, in independent India it was the 1971 war which resulted in large scale
migration to escape religious prosecution and in search of better livelihood. But, the actual burden of such
migration is borne by Assam and Tripura primarily leading to serious demographic transformation. This had
also led to numerous conflicts between the indigenous and migrants populace. Assam movement is the finest
example in this regard and the rise and fall of the regional party that was formed in that backdrop, the Asom
Gana Parishad (AGP). Lamentably, the reality is that the problem still exists. This paper maps the complexity
of the issue from the historical origin till the onset of the National Register of Citizens. Further it questions the
handling of the problem in the hands of the legislative and political structures

Key words: Migration; Illegal Immigration; Politics
