Army commanders to review situation in insurgent-hit Assam

Senior army commanders of the Eastern Army Command will meet shortly to review the ongoing anti-insurgency and intrusion operations in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.

Kolkata, May 22 : Senior army commanders of the Eastern Army Command will meet shortly to review the ongoing anti-insurgency and intrusion operations in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.

Lt Gen K.S. Jamwal, General Officer Commanding in Chief (GOC-in-C) Eastern Command, will preside over the meeting, which will assess the overall security scenario in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.

The General-Officer-Commanding 4Corps, Lt Gen R.K. Chhabra, currently heading the military offensive against the ULFA in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, briefed the visiting commanders in Tezpur in northern Assam on Monday night.

"The GOC-in-Chief (Lt Gen Jamwal) was updated on the latest security situation in Assam," the army spokesman told reporters.

Jamwal, will also hold separate meetings with Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and Governor Lt Gen (Retd) Ajai Singh in Guwahati to discuss strategies to counter a spurt in rebel attacks.

The ULFA, a rebel group fighting for an independent Assamese homeland since 1979, killed at least 11 Hindi-speaking migrant workers in the past 10 days and staged at least two dozen bomb blasts in the last two months.

The attacks came despite a massive military crackdown launched in January after the ULFA killed about 60 Hindi-speaking migrant labourers in eastern Assam.

Jamwal, will visit Tawang and Tenga in Arunachal Pradesh to review the security situation along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) - the border between India and China.

"The GOC-in-C was also briefed about the activities along the LAC before he visits the frontier," the army official said.

The visit by the army commander to the India-China border comes in the wake of claims made by an Arunachal Pradesh MP Khiren Rijuju that China had moved 20 km inside the state.

The state and the central government denied the allegations of any Chinese incursion.
