Four blasts in India on the eve of the Indian Republic Day
NEW DELHI - In Indian Assam state, four blasts took place on the eve of Indian Republic Day.
With an armed insurgency going on in India's northeastern states, dozens of insurgent groups have challenged New Delhi's rule in the region and waged a guerrilla war.
While some armed groups fighting Indian troops demand a separate homeland, the others seek regional autonomy.
Meanwhile, a well-known Indian journalist Faye D'Souza has been dropped from the list of speakers at a lecture series sponsored by Goa state government because of her stand against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
The lecture series would be held from tomorrow at the Kala Academy in Panaji.
