Several Assam districts along Brahmaputra impose blanket ban on mechanised boats; thousands left high and dry
A blanket ban on mechanised country boats since 11 September has left thousands of families stranded, in many cases separated from each other, in the char (sandbar) areas along the banks of the Brahmaputra. When we heard about the ban, I stayed back in Golakganj hoping that the ban would be lifted in a day or two. It is a common tale being heard not just in Dhubri but in other areas of Assam as well.
