GUWAHATI: Assam Director General of Police (DGP) Kuladhar Saikia is not perturbed despite a threat perception ahead of the publication of a “complete draft” of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) on June 30.

Though Saikia put up a brave face by insisting that he did not foresee any trouble, the BJP government has requisitioned additional central forces ahead of the D-Day. 

“We have taken all steps. The sectoral deployment of the forces is already in order. Additional forces are also being provided (by the Centre). However, as the people are supporting the process of the NRC updation, we expect a peaceful atmosphere post-publication of the complete draft. If anyone is found trying to break the law, we warn of tough action. We are ready to face any eventuality,” Saikia told TNIE on Tuesday.

His comments came amidst a perception of possible law and order situation in parts of the state once the complete draft is published. In the past few days, top officials of the police and the bureaucracy visited some ‘vulnerable’ districts to assess law and order situation.

“During the visits, we held meetings with senior officials of the police, administration and security forces. The meetings were part of our internal security review. Police teams are also campaigning for ensuring law and order post-publication of NRC draft,” the DGP said.

On the series of recent incidents including the Karbi Anglong lynchings, he warned that lawlessness would not be tolerated. “We won’t show any amount of leniency in cases of trial by mobs.”
