NEW DELHI, June 26 � Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh is likely to tour Assam ahead of the forthcoming Monsoon Session of Parliament to review the internal security scenario in the State.
It has been learnt that Singh, who was scheduled to visit the State on June 29, has postponed his visit to next month.
Sources said that apart from reviewing the law-and-order situation, the Union Home Minister is likely to hold a special meeting with all stakeholders on the issue of border fencing and the problem of illegal migration.
With RSS pressing the Modi government to act swiftly to seal the Indo-Bangladesh border after signing of the Land Boundary Agreement, Singh would also try and get a first-hand knowledge of the problems facing the border guarding force. Besides, the All Assam Students� Union (AASU) has also been calling for a joint visit to Indo-Bangla border.
Further, Singh is also likely to take stock of the update of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) process, said sources.
The Home Minister�s visit also assumes significance in the wake of the Congress party adopting an aggressive tone against the BJP in the North-east. AICC general secretary V Narayansamy said BJP played mischief with Nagaland and eight Congress MLAs have joined their government. This is a very clear case of disturbing our Congress MLAs. In Manipur, in local elections, Congress candidates were not allowed to file their nominations. Terror outfits have been misused. There are cases where we will expose the NDA government and the direct involvement of MoS Home Kiran Rijiju and BJP president Amit Shah.
