Insurgency situation has improved since BJP has come to power: Rajnath Singh in Assam

Duliajan (Assam): Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday claimed that the insurgency situation has improved considerably in the last 18 months since BJP came to power at the Centre and appealed to all militant outfits in Assam to give up arms and come forward for talks.

"The insurgency situation in the country has improved considerably and is under control during the last 18 months and I am not making this claim myself but political analysts have been pointing this out," Singh told an election rally here.

It is a fact that "incidents keep happening in Assam and when Adivasis were killed by militants in 2014, immediately rushed to Guwahati and in a meeting with the Chief Minister had clearly stated that violence and terror will not be related at any cost", he said.

"As the Union Home Minister, I want send a message to all militants to give up the path of violence and arms. If they have any problem, they must end violence and talk to us. We are prepared to hold talks and settle all issues only if there is no violence and killing of innocent people," Singh said.

He said, along with infiltration, there has been huge inflow of fake currency notes from Bangladesh and it is a matter of great concern as it ultimately ends up controlling the economy. "Congress never paid attention to this problem but we are committed to solve this problem and will check the entry of fake currency from the neighbouring country," Singh said.
