The Assam chief minister pointed out that the main factor for insurgency in the region was lack of industrial development and employment opportunities.
"Armed revolution is not a solution. It can be resolved only through economic development and by providing employment opportunities," Gogoi said.
Earlier, he was shown black flag today by activists of Khasi Students Union.
The activists gathered at the main entrance of the IIM-Shillong as a mark of protest against Assam government’s stand on the border dispute with Meghalaya.
