Paresh desparate to prove strength: Gogoi

Reacting on the recent bomb blasts in Lakhimpur and Karbi Anglong, Chief minister Tarun Gogoi said that the ULFA Chief Paresh Baruah is desperate to prove his strength through bomb blasts. "The foreign powers who don't want to see India's prosperity are pressuring ULFA to act, but they (ULFA) are no longer a force to recon", the CM added.

Gogoi however said the all the DC's have been informed to be alert after the recent blasts. “We have alerted all the district heads so that all possible attempts of the anti-social elements can be averted. A special task force will also be brought for the maintenance of law and order in the state with the involvement of experts and general public". The police department will also recruit another 8,000 police personnel to add on the 12,000 personnel last year.

On the development of the police in the state, he stressed on the importance of the civil policing. “Like the foreign countries, to improve the performance of the police, civil police plays a major role. We also need to put focus on that part,” Gogoi said who recently cancelled his South Africa tour to strengthen the law and order situation.
