GUWAHATI, Aug 3 - With the Monsoon session of the Assam Legislative Assembly approaching, the security of the State Assembly was reviewed in a meeting between the Speaker Pranab Gogoi and City Police Commissioner Mukesh Agarwala today.

Official sources told The Assam Tribune that security measures during the Assembly session assumes more significance this year as the session will be held just before the Independence Day celebrations. Normally, the Monsoon Session of the Assam Assembly is held in July, leaving the police and security forces enough time to make adequate preparations for the Independence Day. But this time, the Session will be held from August 10 to 14 and there will be no time to chalk out a separate security plan for the Independence Day.

Sources said that as some construction work is going on inside the Assembly campus, it would not be possible to allow entry of vehicles of all the legislators inside the campus and they would have to get down from vehicles near the gates of the campus. Only the vehicles of Speaker, Deputy Speaker and Chief Minister would be allowed inside the campus of the Assembly during the session.

Sources revealed that some of the legislators bring a number of people in their vehicles while coming to attend the Assembly session, which create problems for the police personnel manning the gates. The matter has been reported to the Speaker. The Speaker appreciated the problems faced by the police and directed the police that no unauthorized person should be allowed inside the Assembly premises even if he or she is accompanied by a legislator. The legislators have also been asked by the Speaker to be careful while recommending entry passes to anyone.

Meanwhile, sources said that the city police would also have to block some of the roads around the Assembly premises during the session and the details would be announced just before the commencement of the session.
