    Assam-Mizoram border conflict likely to be resolved within this week: Chief Secretary

    Baruah said, “The border dispute has been discussed at the Centre for a permanent solution and is likely to be resolved within this week.”

    GUWAHATI: Chief Secretary to the government of Assam Jishnu Baruah on Tuesday said that the Assam-Mizoram conflict has already been discussed at the Centre and is likely to be resolved within this week.

    Baruah said, “Assam knows its boundary. Assam will never lose an inch of its territory. The border dispute has been discussed at the Centre for a permanent solution and is likely to be resolved within this week.”  

    Notably, Baruah and Director General of Police Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta on Tuesday visited the Lailapur area located in Barak valley’s Cachar district along the Assam-Mizoram border to take stock of the border conflict.

    The top officials also visited the residence of Late Intaj Ali who was killed by miscreants belonging to Mizoram and handed over a sum of Rs 5 lakh as an ex-gratia to the immediate kin of the deceased besides sharing the condolence forwarded by the state’s Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal.

    During the visit, DGP Mahanta said, “Assam will neither tolerate unlawful acts nor commits such unwarranted activities.”

    It need mention here that in protest against the border conflict, number of civil society organisations of Cachar have imposed economic blockade against Mizoram and has been continuing till filling of this report. Under this given situation, the state government of Mizoram is forced to gather essential goods from Tripura.  

    Earlier, the Prime Minister of India asked the Chief Ministers of both the states to maintain status quo at the inter-state border. However, two-three days back, after the appeal of the Prime Minister, one Intaj Ali was kidnapped by miscreants hailing from Mizoram and was found dead. The Killing of Intaj Ali further deteriorated the already boiling inter-state relations.   

    Baruah and Mahanta were accompanied by Forest Minister Parimal Suklabaidya, Silchar MP Rajdeep Roy, Cachar Deputy Commissioner Keerthi Jalli, Deputy Inspector General of Police Dilip Kr Dey and Cachar Superintendent of Police Bhanwar Lal Meena.
