    BREAKING: CM Sonowal seeks HM Amit Shah’s urgent intervention on Assam-Mizoram tension

    Sonowal reviewed the current situation of the Assam-Mizoram border at Janata Bhawan

    GUWAHATI: Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Saturday requested the Union Home Minister Amit Shah to take immediate steps by the Centre to maintain peace and harmony in the border areas of Assam-Mizoram.

    This was the second time within a week that the chief minister has altered the union home minister about the growing tension between the two neighbouring states. Sonowal on Monday wrote to Shah after one person from the Cachar district died in custody in Mizoram.

    On Friday night too, suspected Mizo miscreants bombed a school located on the Assam side of the border. It was also the second time that schools from Assam were targeted. Earlier, a school in the Khulicherra area was bombed on October 24 too.

    Speaking to Shah over the telephone, Sonowal apprised about the situation at the Assam-Mizoram border and steps taken by the State Government.

    An official statement from the chief minister’s office (CMO) said, “The CM requested the Union Home Minister to take necessary steps by the Central Government to maintain peace and harmony in the border areas and assured that the state government would follow the directives of the Central government in managing the situation.”

    Sonowal also reviewed the current situation of the Assam-Mizoram border at a meeting held at his conference room at Janata Bhawan.

    Chief Secretary Jishnu Baruah apprised the chief minister about the present situation there and DGP Bhaskarjyoti Mahanta informed about the steps taken for keeping the law and order situation in control.

    The CM directed the top officials to maintain a peaceful environment and keep brotherhood and harmony intact at the Assam-Mizoram border areas.
