BADARPUR, July 5 - Assam Governor PB Acharya has instructed the security forces to keep strict vigil along the international border, particularly in the wake of the recent carnage carried out by IS extremists in Dhaka.
The Governor told security men that a close eye should be kept on the people, who enter India crossing the Indo-Bangla border and their movements must be looked into. Acharya said that security officials must frisk every tourist (male or female) while maintaining utmost cordial behaviour and keep a record of their names and addresses as also their photographs, in the wake of the terrorist attack in Bangladesh.
Acharya recently also visited Malegarh, 20 km away from Karimganj town and paid floral tributes to the brave Indian soldiers, who had sacrificed their lives in the battlefield of Malegarh. Besides, he also visited the Suterkandi Indo-Bangladesh Border Trade Centre and saw the Indo-Bangla international border fencing and interacted with the officials at the border entry point at Suterkandi.
The Governor instructed Karimganj SP Pradeep Ranjan Kar, to show the development of the district by doing proper work and not by only �pen and paper works�. Acharya took part in three separate meetings with political parties, leading citizens and Government officials, at the DC�s conference hall where he stressed the need to sensitise the public about the various schemes of the Central Government like Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Jan Dhan Yojana, Beti Bachao, Beti Padao etc. He also gave various suggestions for strengthening the Education, Health, Electricity and Road connectivity sectors. He also inaugurated a tree plantation ceremony at the Karimganj Government HS School and planted some saplings on the school premises. In the evening, he attended a press conference where he expressed his deep concern over the miserable condition of the roads in the Barak Valley, and also at the very poor results of the Government schools of entire Karimganj district.
Acharya also urged farmers to take up organic cultivation. The Governor stated this during a discussion with agricultural scientists at the Akabarpur Krishi Vigyan Kendra in Karimganj district. The Governor also advised them to bring the farmers under the purview of all Governmental insurance schemes.
