Representatives from other security agencies like BSF, CRPF and SSB also attended the meeting.
A review of the prevailing security situation in the entire North East in general and Assam, in particular, was carried out during the meeting. It also brought to light the requirement to take proactive measures to avoid any adverse law and order situation in the wake of recent developments over Citizenship Amendment Bill, ST Bill, and other contentious issues.
All the issues covering flood relief measures, Intelligence, Law and Order and the CI/CT operations were deliberated upon and plans formulated to ensure incident-free conduct of the Independence Day celebrations.
In the state of Assam, due to the ongoing insurgency, the Unified Headquarters Mechanism was established in the early 90’s wherein, the Strategy Group functions under the Chief Secretary and the Operational Group is headed by the Tezpur based GOC 4 Corps.
While strategic issues are deliberated upon in the former, the latter is responsible for formulating and streamlining the conduct of CI/CT Operations at the operational and tactical level. The smooth and efficient functioning of both these groups has resulted in overall improvement and stabilization of the CI/CT situation in the state of Assam.
