New Delhi, Nov 16: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh called up Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi to discuss the law and order situation in the State after clashes in Kokrajhar and Gossaigaon, where six people have died since Saturday.



In the telephone call late Thursday, Dr. Singh expressed grief and shock over the incidents and assured that the central government would take all necessary measures to curb the violence and assist the State government in restoring normalcy.

“The Prime Minister spoke to Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, who briefed him on the situation in the State. He said the state government is taking all necessary steps to ensure peace and stability,” said a statement by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).
