CM feels heat of boiling border

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi felt the heat of a boiling border situation when he was on a stock-taking visit on Monday.

As the chief minister’s convoy arrived in Uriamghat area at 11-30 in the morning, angry protesters shouted Gogoi Go Back slogans.

A section of the protesters asked him to immediately leave Uriamghat alleging his failure to deal with the decade old row with Nagaland.

Police resorted to blank firing to disperse a group of protesters as they targeted the chief minister. After a brief discussion with top ranked police and civil officials, the chief minister left the spot.
