    Assam-Nagaland Border Row: Economic Blockade Resumed

    Border row between Assam and Nagaland began on November 10 following the construction of a temporary structure reportedly by Mokokchung administration within Jorhat Forest Division

    GUWAHATI: After a brief halt, the economic blockade against Nagaland imposed by several organizations at Mariani in Jorhat restarted on Saturday again after 36 hours. The blockade was temporarily suspended owing to peace talks between the two states.

    The DC and SP level meeting of Jorhat and Mokokchung districts held on Wednesday at Jorhat Circuit House failed to yield any results.

    Border row between Assam and Nagaland refreshed on November 10 following the construction of a temporary structure reportedly by Mokokchung administration within the Dissoi Valley Reserve Forest under Mariani range of Jorhat Forest Division and then positioning armed Nagaland policemen at the site.

    Assam Police too, on November 11 had put up a temporary camp near the spot where Nagaland policemen were camping in order to prevent any further encroachment by Nagaland.
