Union Minister of state for Home Affairs today appealed to militants in the North East to eschew violence and join the mainstream.

Rijiju, who arrived here following the killing of Hamrem SP Nanda Goswami and his personal security officer (PSO) during an encounter with Karbi Peoples' Liberation Tiger militants, reviewed law and order situation in a closed door meeting with Chief Minister today.

"Don't kill your own brothers and sisters. Come to mainstream. You are doing a great disservice to your own people," Rijiju urged the militants through the media which was waiting outside the venue of the meeting.

Rijiju said if there is trouble in Assam the rest of the North East also suffer.

"You should trust us as Prime Minister wants a developed North East and on hearing the news of the incident, Home Minister immediately directed me to rush to the state to take stock of the situation in Assam," he said.

"The fact that I, who hail from the region, have been appointed as Union Minister of state for Home Affairs signifies that the Government of India has full faith in the people of North East," he said.

Rijiju reviewed the law and order situation with the Chief Minister in a closed door meeting which was attended among others by state Chief Secretary Jitesh Khosla and Director General of Police Khagen Sarmah.

Rijiju and Gogoi also paid homage to Goswami and his PSO Ratul Nunisa at the 4th Assam Police Battalion here.
