Narayanan to review security in NE
National Security Adviser MK Narayanan arrived in Kohima on Saturday on a visit to Nagaland to review the security scenario in the North-east in general and the state in particular, official sources said.
Narayanan will meet Governor K Sankaranarayan, his two advisers, senior civil and police officials and Army commanders during his two day visit to the state.
The NSA arrived in Kohima in a chopper after arriving at Dimapur on a special flight, accompanied by home ministry officials.
In the afternoon he will hold a high-level meeting at police headquarters to review the situation ahead of March 5 assembly election in the state. He will also hold discussion with Army's 3 Corps Commanders.
Narayanan's visit to Nagaland assumes significance in view of fresh developments in the insurgency situation in the North-east with militant outfits taking shelters in neighbouring countries, ULFA's conspiracy to hijack aircraft, reported forciable recruitment of Arunachalee youth by NSCN(K), proliferation of small arms in the region originating from China and other countries. The visit is also significant in the backdrop of on-going peace dialogues with various groups including NSCN(IM).
Narayanan had accompanied Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during his recent visit to forward Army bases in the border state where it was decided to step up offensive against militants by security forces, particularly against ULFA.
