GUWAHATI, Nov 25 � The blame game between the State government and the Centre continues over the recent blast at Rajgarh in Dibrugarh district.
The Government of Assam today pointed out that though law and order is a state subject, the onus also lies on the Central Government in containing insurgency in the State.
In a statement here today, the State Government said that though law and order is a state subject, the Centre cannot shirk its responsibility insofar as containing insurgency is concerned. In this context, the State Government referred to the statement of Union Minister of State Sarbananda Sonowal blaming the State Government for the Rajgarh blast in Dibrugarh district by suspected ULFA militants, and said it would not allow the Centre to go scot free. �Instead of blaming the State Government alone, the Union Minister of State must also realise that the Central Government, too, has a major role to play, as all the insurgent outfits have their bases outside the country. By attacking the State Government, the Union Minister of State has also indirectly attacked his own Government, as the central security agencies, including the Army are under its control,� it added.
