Assam Police had released a set of helpline numbers in order to extend help to all the people of Assam State,who are stuck in an emergency either within Assam or outside.
However, on the first day, the WhatsApp Helpline Number 9435215029 received around 16000 messages within 24 hours. More than 95% of these messages were from people who are outside, requesting Assam Police to facilitate their return.
Few messages were found to be frivolous in nature, thus clogging the helpline and making it difficult to focus on messages which required immediate intervention.
It is reiterated that as per Government orders, people who are presently in different states cannot travel back to Assam till the time lockdown remains in force.
At the same time the Government is committed to help all those with emergency requirements of medical attention/medicines, food and accommodation. This applies to people of Assam both in the state or outside Assam. Hence we again request all Citizens to follow the lockdown in its true spirit and reach out to helpline numbers in case of emergencies which need immediate intervention. Clogging the helpline with non-urgent requirements can hurt your fellow citizens who may need immediate attention.
In order to have a more focused and dedicated response mechanism for all, we are publishing dedicated State wise Helpline numbers for people of Assam currently in different states.
