    The solution to a potentially very serious national problem would lie in making Cachar district a separate Union Territory with no special political connection with Assam. Cachar has a population of some 40 lakh people of whom a little over half are Hindus. Under two per cent are Christians and the rest Muslims. More or less, all speak and write Bengali. Its economy is viable especially with the help of over a hundred tea gardens which produce five crore kilograms of the beverage worth Rs 800 crore annually.
