Assam Govt Advises People Not to Travel to Mizoram

After the clashes on the Assam-Mizoram border recently, the Assam government has now issued an advisory advising its people not to go to Mizoram. Along with this, people living in Mizoram and people going to emergency were asked to be careful.

Referring to the incident of violence, the advisory said, “Even after this incident, some Mizo civil society, students and youth organizations are continuously issuing provocative statements against the state of Assam and its people. From the video footage available with the Assam Police, it has come to know that many civilians are armed with automatic weapons etc. Travel advisory has been issued for these reasons.

On this, the Congress said that it is a shameful day for the country as a state has to issue advisories to its people regarding travel to another state. Congress General Secretary and Chief Spokesperson Randeep Surjewala, referring to the advisory issued by the Assam government to the people of the state to avoid traveling to Mizoram, said that all this is possible in the country when Narendra Modi is there.

Amidst the controversy, the Mizoram Police had opened fire on a team of Assam officials on Monday. In which five personnel of Assam Police and one civilian were killed. More than 50 others, including a superintendent of police, were injured.

After this violence, on Wednesday, the Union Home Ministry held a meeting with the officials of Mizoram and Assam for about two hours. In this meeting, both the state governments agreed to deploy neutral Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) along the disturbed inter-state border on National Highway 306.

The districts of Cachar, Karimganj and Hailakandi in Barak Valley of Assam share a 164 km long border with three districts of Mizoram, Aizawl, Kolasib and Mamit. The incident took place two days after Union Home Minister Amit Shah held talks with chief ministers of eight northeastern states and underlined the need to resolve border disputes.
