NEW DELHI, July 29 � After Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh�s visit, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram will visit the violence-affected areas of Kokrajhar tomorrow.
During his two-day tour, the Union Home Minister would preside over a high-level security meeting in Guwahati to review the law and order situation in Kokrajhar and neighbouring areas besides meeting senior officers of the State Government and BTC. He would also assess the impact of relief measures and other steps taken to normalise the situation.
Meanwhile, a group of NGOs met in Mumbai on July 26 to assess and discuss the recent communal violence in Assam and Uttar Pradesh. The social and educational NGO leaders have strongly condemned the Assam violence in which Muslims have been subject to a planned ethnic cleansing. They urged the Central Government to immediately take strong and decisive action to control the burning of Muslim villages and killing of members of the community as the Gogoi-led State Government is virtually failed to protect its innocent citizens.
