Patnaik concerned over BTAD violence
 GUWAHATI, Nov 22 - Expressing serious concern at the fresh outbreak of violence in Bodoland Territorial Autonomous Council (BTAD) areas, Assam Governor JB Patnaik today instructed the DGP to conduct house-to-house search for recovery of illegal arms, and to take strict action under the provisions of the IPC and the Arms Act against the offenders.The Governor said this during a meeting with the Chief Secretary and the DGP where he discussed with the senior officials the BTAD law-and-order situation and its disturbing impact on the region's development.

Patnaik also insisted that peace committees should immediately be formed on village-to-village basis so that people who have returned or would return to their homes could work in an atmosphere of peace and amity, as their immediate problem was that of paddy harvesting on which the economy of the people depended and they should on no account be allowed to be disturbed.
