The Army will go on with the war, while the paramilitary gives support and also while government is reconstructing the area. “Because we have not been able to recruit for the past five or six years, due to our failed recruitment exercises we have not been able to have the kind of man power that is needed to carry out this administrative occupation of the North-East zone.

“So that services approached government that so many officers have died in the North East zone, others have retied because they have completed their years of service or on account of age, others have been moved due to several reasons. “The workforce we are putting to this places are not actually the middle cadre or the senior officers it is the inspectorate that is level 1-7.
