By Deccan Chronicle

Even after significant improvement in law and order scenario, the unified command of security forces has decided not to scale down counter-insurgency operations in Assam and adjoining states as there is apprehension of China trying to extend direct or indirect help to armed rebel groups of India to create unrest in the north-eastern states.

The apprehension about China instigating insurgent groups of northeast is based on a report in China’s Global Times which stated that if India plays Taiwan card, China should also help militant groups of India to retaliate.

Admitting that Chinese agencies have been directly or indirectly helping the militant groups of northeast and under the present circumstances, the Chinese agencies would definitely like to provide help to revive insurgency in the region, security sources present in the unified command meeting told this newspaper that GOC 4 Corps of Indian Army Lt Gen Shantanu Dayal, who chaired the unified command, assured that there is no need to worry on China front.

He asserted that Indian army in the northeast is fully prepared and capable of responding to any kind of threat emanating from across the border.
