Flag marches by the army that was called in by the civil administration, was continuing across the violence-hit district for area domination and to instill confidence among the people, officials said.
     
Meanwhile, the United Peoples Democratic Solidarity (UPDS), which had signed a tripartite Memorandum of Settlement for peace with the Centre and Assam government in Delhi on November 5, 2011, tore the MoS in Diphu on Saturday, claiming that it no longer honoured the peace accord.
    
The then UPDS General Secretary, Haren Sing Bey and Joint Secretary Wazaru Mukrang in the presence of their supporters tore up the MoS. Both of them are now the Karbi Anglong Autonomous District Council members after the UPDS surrendered in December 2011 following the peace accord.
