Border intrusion: Chief Ministers of Assam, Mizoram hold talks, MHA seeks reports

Border intrusion: Chief Ministers of Assam, Mizoram hold talks, MHA seeks reports

The minister said Sonowal had discussion the matter with his Mizoram counterpart, Lal Thanhawla, and Home Minister Rajnath Singh which was followed by talks with the chief secretary and at the local level to defuse the tension.

However, the date for holding talks between the two states was not yet fixed, the statement said.

He also said Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal was himself monitoring the situation on the Assam-Mizoram border.

Lal Thanhawla said that there had been border disputes with Assam like other such instances with neighbouring states which sometimes culminated into violent clashes causing hardships especially to those in the fringe areas.

Speaking to The Telegraph, MZP general secretary Lalnunmawia Pautu said they are adamant about constructing the shed at Zophai in Kolasib district along the Mizoram-Assam border as the land belongs to them. "Some are trying to create tension between Assam and Mizoram for gains with political motivation".

Information and Public Relation minister Lal Thanzara expressed regret for the alleged brutal and inhuman act on Mizoram journalists by Assam police.

The protesting journalists also carried several placards that reads "We demand justice for Mizo journalists", "Assam police, you should educate yourself of democracy", "We brutally condemns the brutality of Assam police", and "We demand termination of Hailakandi DC/DM Adil Khan", among others. Stating that the alleged brutal attack on students journalists as "unfortunate", the minister said such "inhuman action should not be repeated anymore".

The Hailakandi organization had yesterday braced prohibitory requests under segment 144 of the CrPC in specific regions securing infringement endeavors from the opposite side.

Congress MLA Kamalakhya Dey Purkayastha requested the state government to hold a tripartite meeting of Assam, Mizoram and the Centre to find out a permanent solution to the problem.

Meanwhile, the Mizo Zirlai Pawl (MZP), the apex Mizo student body and other student organisations today organised rallies across Mizoram to protest the alleged firing and lathi-charge by Assam Police on the students, a MZP leader said.

The student activists have been camping at Zopui locality in Kolasib district since Thursday to construct a rest house on the land of the late Ch Chhunga, first chief minister of the state where a large number of Assam's police forces were deployed to prevent them from doing so.
