Assam-Mizoram border clash: Mizoram urges immediate restoration of traffic
Mizoram has asked the Central Government to take immediate action to restore traffic that was disrupted following the Assam-Mizoram border clashes. The CRPF has been deployed in the region as there is a risk of conflict on the border between the two states. Assam police will soon question a Mizoram MP who threatened to kill policemen.
The Mizoram government has alleged that the attackers from Assam removed the rail tracks and blocked National Highway 306, affecting the entire traffic in the state. The state has asked the central government to take immediate action to restore it. The Mizoram Home Secretary said that the most important railway line in Mizoram was blocked.
He also criticized the state agencies or the people for not having the power to disrupt road and rail transport. The states of Assam and Mizoram reached an interim agreement yesterday on the border dispute. Based on this, both the states withdrew their police forces. Currently, the Central Paramilitary Division is deployed about four kilometers away in the disputed area.
Meanwhile, a Mizoram MP has threatened to kill Assam policemen. Assam police are on the move to question K Vanlalvena in Delhi. The MP said that it was the Assam police who started firing unilaterally and would kill everyone if they trespassed further. Police are preparing to question the MP on allegations of conspiracy
