The Congress on Monday hit out at the BJP over the violence at the Assam-Mizoram border that claimed lives of six police personnel, stating that it was a matter of disgrace that the tensions escalated within a day of Union Home Amit Shah chairing a meeting to resolve the dispute.

In a statement, the Congress said that it was a matter of great concern that Chief Ministers of the two states, both belonging to the North-East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), were openly arguing on Twitter while the tensions escalated.

“Just yesterday (Sunday) the Home Minister himself had chaired a meeting with the Chief Ministers and Chief Secretaries of the North Eastern States to discuss interstate border dispute issues. What transpired between them? What were the policies to mitigate the border disputes adopted?” the Congress sought to know.

“It has become a matter of great public concern as well as appalling humour that responsible persons like Chief Ministers both belonging to same NEDA alliance are openly arguing with each other on Twitter handles and they have also tagged the Home Minister and Prime Minister.”

Taking a dig, the Congress said that the BJP government seemed to be running the country through Twitter.

At least six Assam Police personnel were killed and around 50 others, including Cachar”s superintendent of police, injured in firing as violence intensified along the border with Mizoram.

Condoling the deaths, the BJP’s Assam unit tweeted, “We offer our tributes to the six Assam Police jawans martyred in firing by miscreants in the Assam-Mizoram border. May their souls rest in eternal peace.”

Opposition AIUDF also aired its concern over the violence.

“Had the two CM’s tried to solve the conflict through dialogue, this escalation could have been averted. Urge both the state Govt’s to find an amicable solution at the earliest and relieve the suffering of people residing in the border areas,” AIUDF MLA Ashraful Hussain tweeted.

Condemning the violence, the Assam Jatiya Parishad (AJP) said the incident assumes more importance as it happened just a day after a meeting of chief ministers of the Northeastern states.

The governments in both Assam and Mizoram are part of the NEDA, of which Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma is the convener, the AJP pointed out.
