“On the basis of intelligence inputs, the district administration apprehends the involvement of miscreants who may try to disrupt the peace and tranquility of the district by indulging in anti-social activities taking advantage of two major events happening on the same day — The Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra and the Ram Lalla Pran Pratistha, simultaneously”, district commissioner Devashis Sarma said in a letter to the Congress functionaries.

‘In the interest of Rahul Gandhi’s safety and security, who is a ‘Z plus’ protectee along with our responsibility to avert any probable law and order disruption in Morigaon district, we request that the party refrains from proposed street-corner meeting at the Bihutoli police point and padyatra from the Srimanta Sankardeva Chowk in Morigaon town’, the letter said.
