The ministry has particularly asked the state governments to make the District Magistrates and the district police chiefs "personally responsible" for the law and order situations in their areas of jurisdiction, sources said on Monday. States have been advised to beef up security and make appropriate arrangements to prevent any untoward incident, including issue of prohibitory orders, if necessary. -- Peace Is Doable -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Green Youth Movement" group.
