Union Home Minister Amit Shah is in Assam on a three-day visit, during which he will attend the Himanta Biswa Sarma-led government’s first anniversary celebrations, and travel to the India-Bangladesh border. Shah was received at the Guwahati airport by Sarma and other senior state BJP leaders late on Sunday.
“Honoured to receive Adarniya HM Shri @AmitShah ji at LGBI Airport, Guwahati. Adarniya Griha Mantri ji will attend several events over next two days in Assam,” Sarma tweeted. The home minister will visit the Mankachar border outpost of the BSF on Monday morning and interact with the officials posted there.
Amit Shah on Monday reviewed the situation along the Assam-Bangladesh border from the Mankachar sector of the state. The home minister, accompanied by BSF officials, reviewed the border situation from an observation tower set up for the occasion. He was also seen interacting with local villagers, who had gathered in the area.
He will also lay the foundation and take part in the groundbreaking ceremony for CENWOSTO-II (Central Workshop and Stores) for Central Armed Paramilitary Force (CAPF) at Kelenchi in Tamulpur district.
Shah will later inaugurate the Census office at Amingaon in Kamrup district, and the Superspeciality Cardiothoracic and Neurosciences Centre at the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital in the evening.
On Tuesday, he will present the ‘President’s Colour’ to Assam Police at a ceremony in Guwahati, and also interact with the officers and personnel of the force. He will then address a public rally to mark the completion of one year in office of the Sarma-led dispensation.
Shah is scheduled to return to New Delhi on Tuesday evening.
