MHA to discuss boundary dispute with Mizoram, Assam

| | New Delhi

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has convened a meeting of the chief secretaries of Mizoram and Assam on March 20 to resume dialogue on the boundary dispute between the two States in wake of the protests by students which turned violent recently.

Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba will meet the chief secretaries of the two States and carry forward the dialogues, a Home Ministry official said. Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla had approached Home Minister Rajnath Singh seeking his intervention on the border dispute.

The Home Minister has urged the Mizoram Chief Minister to ensure peace in the State’s side of the border and not to allow people to gather at Bairabi and stage protests there.    

The Ministry is in constant touch with the Assam and Mizoram Governments, official said. The State Governments were asked to take appropriate steps to ensure law and order, prevent the situation from escalating and bring the situation under control.
