He further said that the AR battalions deployed in the other states of the North East and the Kashmir valley have also done a magnificent job.

He commended the Fmn Cdrs for planting and highest number of saplings among all CAPF in the North East region. He also said that distribution of healthy rations to the Force is a key area wherein new items like millets have been inducted. The DG said that ensuring the wellbeing of Veterans of Assam Rifles is also our foremost responsibility for which 11 ESM rallies were held this year and close to 500 grievances settled.
During the conference, the Director General complimented the Formation and Unit Commanders for their leadership and that of junior leaders in dealing with the multiple challenges of the North East. He exhorted them to keep themselves abreast of the existing situation and remain omni-vigilant in the dynamic environment that exists. He brought out that the Assam Rifles has always identified itself with the people of the North East and ensured their security and well-being.
