Assam situation improves; curfew relaxed in Guwahati & Dibrugarh

A large number of people thronged markets in Guwahati to buy necessary food items. However, educational institutes remain closed in Guwahati and other places.

There has been no report of any violent incident in the state during the last 36 hours. Security forces are maintaining a strict vigil across the state to avoid any untoward incident.

The West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has urged people to maintain peace and warned that strict action will be taken against those indulging in violence.

Ms. Banerjee urged the citizens of the state not to take up law in their own hands and also requested not to put up a blockade on roads and rail tracks which creates trouble for the common people.

She also warned strong action for damaging government properties besides re-iterating that Amended Citizenship Act and the proposed countrywide NRC will not take effect in the state.

Our Kolkata correspondent reports that agitations are continuing at different parts of the state protesting amended Citizenship act.

Agitators set up road and rail track blockade at different areas and ransacked the Station Manager’s room at Sankrail in Howrah District.

A number of buses were also set on fire. Due to blockade on rail tracks by the agitators, a number of trains have been cancelled or re-scheduled. All Police Stations in the State have been put on high in view of the continuing protests.
