Assam-Mizoram Border Clash: Assam-Mizoram Border Situation “Under Control”: Centre, Day After Clashes

Assam-Mizoram Border Situation 'Under Control': Centre, Day After Clashes - 10 Points

Assam-Mizoram Border Dispute: The border dispute between Assam and Mizoram escalated on Monday.

New Delhi:
Assam-Mizoram border situation is “under control” and more CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) troops have been deployed to keep a check on both sides, the government said today, a day after five Assam police officers were killed in clashes.

Here is your ten-point cheat sheet on this big story:

  1. The Union Home Ministry said it is closely monitoring the situation. On Monday, Home Minister Amit Shah spoke to the Chief Ministers of both the states – Assam’s Himanta Biswa Sarma and Mizoram’s Zoramthanga. 

  2. Himanta Biswa Sarma will be visiting the border area today for a review. Mizoram Home Minister Lalchamliana will also take a stock of the situation as he visits the area, a day after violence. 

  3.  Assam has declared a three-day state mourning to condole the deaths in Monday’s clashes. Both the states are blaming each-other for the escalation in tensions.

  4. This morning, the Assam Chief Minister visited Silchar Medical College and Hospital to meet the cops injured in the clash. The state government on Monday said over 50 people were injured. The violence was captured in unprecedented visuals from the border area.

  5. Himanta Sarma on Monday said “clear evidences are emerging” that the Mizoram Police used Light Machine Guns against the Assam Police personnel. Mizoram said the violence started after the Assam Police crossed the border and “over-ran” a police post at Kolasib.

  6. The Congress has been targeting the BJP over the violence and the border dispute between the two states. A seven-member committee will be formed, former Union Minister and Congress leader Jitendra Singh Alwar said today, “to assess the dispute and the ensuing violence that has cost the lives of police personnel among others”.

  7. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi this morning attacked Amit Shah in a tweet and said, “the Home Minister has failed the country yet again”.  Among other opposition leaders, the Trinamool’s Abhishek Banerjee slammed the BJP and tweeted: “India deserves better”. 

  8. Three districts of Mizoram — Aizawl, Kolasib and Mamit — share a 164.6 km long inter-state border with Assam’s Cachar, Hailakandi and Karimganj districts. The area has seen clashes for decades, with the locals and security forces on each side accusing the other of intrusion. The last incident was reported in June.

  9. The dispute dates back to the British-era when two border notifications were issued. Both Mizoram and Assam claim land on border between Assam’s Cachar and Mizoram’s Kolasib district.

  10.  Mizoram was earlier part of Assam and called ‘Lushai Hills’. It became a state in 1972, and a in 1987. Mizoram, which shares border with three states, also has border dispute with Tripura.
