New Delhi: Home minister P Chidambaram today said there is currently no cause for security alarm in the national capital in view of the preparations for the Independence Day but the northeastern state of Assam has been alerted to increase vigil.
“Assam has been put on alert because 27 July was observed as a day by some of the groups (protest day by ULFA). Therefore, Assam is put on alert as far as Independence day is concerned,” Chidambaram told reporters here when asked if there was any input about possible attempts to disrupt 15 August celebrations in the country.
“Every year, we do increase vigilance in the run up to the Independence day. Let us see..there is still time as and when we get intelligence, we take a decision. But there is no cause of alarm as far as Delhi is concerned,” he said.
