In his official Twitter handle, Singh wrote:

‘Earnestly request and advise people in containment zones not to seek Inter-State travel passes. Please don’t endanger 3.3 Crore people of Assam by travelling from containment zone to Assam. We are not allowing people to come out of containment zones even within Assam.’
