In order to ensure that there is no further loss of studies of students in the affected areas, the concerned departments should make makeshift arrangement, wherever necessary, so that classes can resume again, Gogoi said.

He was reviewing relief and rehabilitation measures in Kokrajhar, Chirang, Bongaigaon and Dhubri districts in a meeting with Chief Secretary and other senior officials here yesterday.

The Chief Minister also emphasised the need to provide proper sanitation facilities to camp inmates with special focus on women inmates and stressed the need for decongesting the crowded camps.

He also instructed the officials to provide safe drinking water for the people in the camps and soaps/detergents to maintain cleanliness.

The state government has also appealed to all persons, organizations and political parties to cooperate and join hands with the government in restoring peace in the state.

The government appealed that processions, rally, marches which have the potential to aggravate tension and disturb the social fabric should not be undertaken for a period of one month.

Violence in Lower Assam's four trouble-torn districts have claimed 96 lives since July 19 last with 2,42,343 inmates still taking shelter in 218 camps in the districts.
