With a tone of confidence in his voice, Kharkrang said, ''The people of Meghalaya will respond positively. The public has confidence in us and we will make sure that the celebrations are carried out successfully.'' Still, they cannot take such threats lightly, for they may strike during the celebrations. Though, with the security planned for the day, it might be a difficult task for the militants as well. Though, the officer maintains that they are not ignoring the threat, as ''we do not take any threat lightly as well.''
''We have deployed normal measures. The area has been sanitised. There is police presence every 24 hours in the area. Apart from this, during the evenings primarily, we have a very strict vehicle checking process in place as well, '' said Kharkrang.
He further added that the militant group with such statement just want to show that they are still alive and active.
