Guwahati: Assam police are in close touch with their Arunachal Pradesh counterpart to control the growing activities of Maoists along the border, state Director General of Police Jayanta Narayan Choudhury said.
Choudhury told that “We are working in close cooperation with our Arunachal Pradesh counterpart to check the activities of Maoists along the Sadiya border.”
Choudhury had prior voiced anxiety over the growing presence of Maoists in the upper Assam districts of Tinsukia, Dibrugarh and Sibsagar near Arunachal.
The DGP said that Maoists always worked on long-term strategies and cited the example of Jangalmahal in West Bengal where CPI (Maoist) had been working for 13 years to develop a base. The greatest strategy would be to check the activities of the Maoists from the start before they became energetic by recruiting fresh cadres, he said.
