Defuse tension: Rajnath to CMs

 Union home minister Rajnath Singh asked Assam and Nagaland chief ministers to defuse tension along the borders of the two states where at least 18 people lost their lives in Golaghat districts.

Singh’s appeal came to Tarun Gogoi and TR Zeliang a day before the much-awaited fence-mending talks in Dispur on Thursday. The Union home minister told both the CMs to come up with a joint statement on Thursday.

Talking to Singh over telephone on Wednesday, Gogoi sought from him additional companies of paramilitary forces to restore normalcy in the affected areas.

A joint Secretary would be visiting the trouble torn areas on Thursday to take stock of the situation.
