But in many urban areas, including the city of Guwahati some people are still found on the road bereft of any reason forcing the police to read the riot act.

"But the government lacks coordination which was why, the people are confused, " said Debabrata Saikia.  According to the Opposition leader in the state assembly, whatever decision is government takes should be after proper consultation and consensus.

"Had there been better coordination, there won't have been any situation like unruly crowd in the open markets and shops on Friday, " said Saikia.
