Guwahati, Dec 4(ANI): There is a gradual improvement in the security scenario in Assam's North Cachar Hills district, following the surrender of the Jewel Garlosa faction of Dima Halim Daogah or 'Black Widow' militants.
The markets are now flooded with people, railway services have resumed and rock concerts are attracting a huge number of people.
Businessman and traders are happy as markets are filled with customers, which earlier remained empty because of frequent militant attacks. While, night trains have resumed service and work on Lumding-Silchar railway gauge project has begun.
The work on the 201 km Lumding-Silchar project has been resumed by most of the companies who had earlier abandoned it.
"Since October 20, 2009, we have resumed the services at night as the law and order situation is under control. And it has been observed that the number of tourists have increases exponentially. They are coming in large numbers and are exhilarated about the fact that railway has now once again scheduled there," said S Hajong, Chief Public Relation Officer of Northeast Frontier Railway.
With the situation improving in the region, people are beginning to enjoy life, and a local musician Morningkey Phangso recently organized a rock concert in the valley, which attracted large audiences.
"Earlier, we were always concerned about the security when we organize this king of program in the district of Assam. Actually due to many other reasons like you cannot travel around move around, but now since things have started settling down and peace is coming. So, this is in fact a very good initiative and how I believe that we can go everywhere to organize these shows," Phangso said.
People in NC Hills have realized that violence results in loss of lives and properties and displacement of people.
Living in peace and harmony, on the other hand leads to all-round development of the region. (ANI)
