New Delhi, July 17: Union Home minister Rajth Singh on Friday offered Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi "all possible help" to maintain law and order in the State. "I assured the Assam CM of all possible help from the Centre, including additiol security forces if needed," the Home minister tweeted after talking to Gogoi over telephone. The two leaders talked against the backdrop of the Tuesday night's incident in which Ulfa militants shot dead ndalal Shah (65) and his daughter Kajal (21) at their residence in Tinsukia district and left three others injured. "Gogoi told me that the State has already rushed security forces to Tinsukia region to maintain peace and order," the Home minister added. Singh said the Central government is "committed to maintain peace" in the northeast region and will extend "all necessary help" in this regard. He made the comment while interacting with a galand delegation, comprising galand Chief Minister TR Zeliang, galand assembly Speaker Chotisuh Sazo and some legislators, which called on him here.
"The government of India is committed to maintain peace in the state (galand) as well as in the northeast region and will extend all necessary help in this regard," he said.
The minister said the Central government was also committed to peace, prosperity, stability in the state and desires the same from the people of galand.
"The unilateral abrogation of ceasefire by NSCN-K has caused pain and concern to the people of galand and the authorities in the state and at the Centre," Singh said.
According to an official statement, the home minister expressed satisfaction over the steps being taken by the State government. "There should be no atmosphere of fear psychosis among the people."
Earlier in the day, the delegation called on Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju and discussed the issues related to the state and the region.
Meanwhile, Army chief General Dalbir Singh left here on Friday to review the security situation in the northeastern states. The army chief will visit the area of 3 Corps, which covers Aruchal Pradesh and galand.
