Assam CM lauds efforts of Cachar’s women administrators trying to rein in Assam-Mizoram border situation
The inter-state border of Assam-Mizoram at Lailapur of Cachar district flared on July 26 with sounds of bullets and tear gas, snuffing out the lives of six Assam Police personnel and injuring many, including Cachar Superintendent of Police, Nimbalkar Vaibhav Chandrakanth.
Following the incident, both the senior women administrative officials of the district, Deputy Commissioner Keerthi Jalli and Superintendent of Police Ramandeep Kaur, make repeated visits to ground zero and strived to bring the situation under their control.
Now, the diligence of both DC Jalli and SP Kaur in managing the border turmoil has earned praise from Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, who hailed their efforts as the epitome of ‘Nari Shakti’.
Reacting to the appreciation, Keerthi on August 2 said, “It is a great honour to receive recognition from the Hon’ble Chief Minister. Such accolades inspire us to work hard.”
Complementing her colleagues, DC Keerthi also stated that their hard work paid off because of the guidance received from her seniors, who create a positive environment at work.
The contribution of SP Kaur, a highly trained IPS officer of the 2013 batch, also did not go unnoticed as CM Sarma also showered praises on her for her efforts in bringing the situation under control.
“It is a great honour and a matter of pride to be hailed as an epitome of ‘Nari Shakti’ by CM Himanta Biswa Sarma. It is the government’s mandate to protect the borders and I am doing my duties with utmost responsibility and to the best of my capability,” said Kaur.
