Heavy security presence conflicting CM's claim of law and order improvement

IMPHAL, August 17: State Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh and his council of Ministers including Deputy Chief Minister Gaikhangam have been making repeated claims about the improvement in the law and order situation of the state while speaking at various official functions and other public gatherings.

However, considering the number of paramilitary forces and army being deployed in the state, many have been raising their eyebrows on hearing the claims made by the CM and his council of Ministers.

According to information received from a highly placed source, a large number of Assam Rifles personnel of 25 battalions are being deployed at 136 places in all the nine districts of the state.

These AR personnel are engaged in law and order maintenance and counter insurgency operations. They also conduct what are called combined operations with the state forces under the supervision of the Director General of Police and the state also allows them to conduct counter insurgency operations and law and order maintenance duties on their own.

The Assam Rifles battalions which are currently deployed in the state are 4 AR, 5 AR, 7 AR, 9 AR, 10 AR, 13 AR, 15 AR, 16 AR, 22 AR, 24 AR, 26 AR, 27 AR, 28 AR, 30 AR, 33 AR, 35 AR, 36 AR, 37 AR, 38 AR, 39 AR, 41 AR, 42 AR, 43 AR, 44 AR and 46 AR.

There are 12 places in Tamenglong district where the Assam Rifles are deployed, 11 places in Senapati district, 6 places in Bishnupur, 14 places in Thoubal districts, seven places in Imphal West district and 15 places in Imphal East district including Jiribam Sub-Division.

Out of the nine districts, the three districts bordering Myanmar were deployed with the highest number of Assam Rifles with 23 places in Churachandpur district, 31 places in Chandel district and 17 places in Ukhrul district.                  

It may also be mentioned here that besides the state security forces and the Assam Rifles, other security forces including Army, Border Security Force (BSF) and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) are also deployed in the state.
