Cabinet panel to decide on replacing Assam Rifles
The Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) headed by the Prime Minister is likely to take a final call on the proposal to replace Assam Rifles with Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) following the Home Ministry’s reservation over the move.
According to sources, the Union Home Ministry has red flagged the proposal submitted by the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) chief RN Ravi on handling of security along the porous Myanmar border. The Home Ministry has red-flagged the suggestion saying that replacing the entire Assam Rifles force from the border could have serious “financial and security-related implications.”
