GUWAHATI, Oct 7 - As a sequel to DCs and SPs� conference in Guwahati, a gamut of issues relating to the foreigners� issue in Hailakandi district was reviewed at a meeting convened by Deputy Commissioner Moloy Bora at his office conference room here today, a press release stated.

Deputy Commissioner Bora called upon all the officials to see to it that the vexed foreigners� issue vis-a-vis relating to detection and initiation of action including deletion of names from electoral rolls is taken to its logical conclusion in the light of the importance and significance accorded by the present dispensation since day one.

Bora underscored the need for evolving a foolproof mechanism involving better monitoring, coordination and accountability to address effectively the vexed foreigners� problem. �No foreigners must be allowed to go scot free and action must be initiated against them, including detention in the designated camps,� he said emphatically.
