No arms for BTAD villagers

The Assam Government will not allow any arms for the BTAD villagers. This was what chief minister Tarun Gogoi told reporters in Dispur on Monday.

Talking to reporter, Gogoi said that he has already rejected a proposal he received on Sunday for allowing arms to villagers in BTAD areas to face the miscreants.

Forest minister who has been closely monitoring the situation proposed arms among the villagers in some BTAD areas for self defence.
