By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Aug 30 - The situation in the State is �quiet�, �calm� and �very normal� and adequate security and deployment plans have been made in view of the publication of the National Register of Citizens slated for Saturday, DGP Kuladhar Saikia said today.

Addressing a press conference here, Saikia said all district SPs have been asked to review the situation in their areas off and on and take necessary precautions.

There are 2500 NSKs in the State and according to an earlier estimate around 1,200 of them have been categorized as sensitive from the security point of view. However, the DGP said the number was dynamic and keeps on changing as evaluations are being made continuously.

�The district police have been doing surveys to identify vulnerable pockets and as per the evaluation, deployment of forces is being done. Regular patrolling and night domination is being conducted in these identified pockets. Recently, we had got 51 additional companies of Central armed paramilitary forces, which will be in addition to the existing 167 companies we had from before. Besides, our task forces and battalions will also be deployed,� he added.

All district control rooms have been activated and linked with the Assam Police and NRC headquarters.

The DGP said public outreach and awareness programmes were organized up to village level in the run-up to the publication of the NRC.

�We are also monitoring the social media so that no inflammatory messages are circulated. Awareness drives have been conducted in this respect and police have been directed to take strict action against anyone indulging in such activities,� he said, adding that all measures are being taken to ensure that there is no law-and-order problem.
