Adequate security measures in place in Assam, says Shinde
New Delhi, Sept 10 (ANI): Sufficient security arrangements have been made by the security forces in the vulnerable areas of Assam to prevent recurrence of communal violence, Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde announced here on Monday.
Presenting the Ministry's report card for the month of August, Shinde said that normalcy is returning to Assam and people are going back from relief camps to their native places.
" I am happy to note that normalcy is returning to Assam gradually and people are going back from relief camps to their native places. Sufficient security arrangements have been made by the state police in vulnerable areas. I had requested the state governments to take all possible measures to prevent recurrence of such incidents in future," Shinde said.
He termed the communal colour being given to the recent ethnic violence in Assam as "unfortunate."
