Shillong, Aug 23: The UPA government today extended 'Operation Sadbhavana' to North Eastern states.

Official sources said the Operation was extended mainly to remove any feeling of alienation which might arise among the local inhabitants as a result of the Army's counter insurgency operations.

Under this programme, small scale developmental and community projects have been undertaken by the Armed Forces for the benefit of the civilians in areas where the civil administration finds difficulty in implementing such schemes.

The Centre had earmarked Rs 7 crore to implement the programme for 2005-06.
