CHIRANG, Aug 8 � Although no fresh incident of violence was reported in the BTAD areas in the last 24 hours, reports of people returning to various relief camps in sizeable numbers have forced the Government to reassess its strategy.
The latest development has further dented the efforts initiated by the authorities concerned in withdrawing the camps before August 15. The August 15 deadline was set to facilitate decongestion of schools, which have now been turned into relief camps. Several camps in Chirang, Kokrajhar and even Bongaigaon have reportedly witnessed a rise in number of inmates in the last 48 hours after the latest bout of violence witnessed in the area after a gap of almost ten days.
Meanwhile, barring one or two camps, supply of food and other relief materials have been found adequate.
�However, hygiene remains a problem in most of the relief camps,� official sources said.
Members of the National Human Rights Commission today visited various camps in the BTAD areas and took account of the condition of the affected.
