Assam managed to recover 1800 acres of land in Mizoram: Himanta Biswa Sarma | Popgen Tech


Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Wednesday in the state assembly said that Assam has 1800 acres of land in Mizoram.

Sarma said, “This government has managed to recover 1800 acres of land in Mizoram. We have signed an MOU with Meghalaya on border dispute. The fact that Assam won can be derived from the fact that a petition was filed in the Meghalaya high court and not people from Assam moved any court.”

Recently, Meghalaya High Court directed the operation on March 29 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Meghalaya and Assam. The court directed that till February 6 there will be no physical demarcation or construction of border posts.

The MoU signed in the presence of Union Home Minister Amit Shah by Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma and his Assam counterpart on March 29 “resolves” six of the 12 joint dispute areas between the two states in the first phase.

Sarma said, “We are in talks with Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland. During the clashes between Assam and Mizoram, many spoke about the need for unity among the north eastern states. It is in the cultural ethos of the Assamese people to solve the problem through talks and discussions”.

On July 26, 2021, there were clashes along the Assam-Mizoram border that left seven people dead and several others injured. The Union Home Ministry had to intervene.

He said, “The Congress party must not be provoked on the border issue. The Congress organized an assembly which claimed a school from Assam in present Mizoram. This is a two-year-old thing; The school is not under the control of Assam. Now CRPF is deployed, this is under the constitutional boundary of Assam and will be resolved. We can’t go and start shooting there. This spoils the atmosphere and affects the investment climate. He added, “Most of the opposition parties went there and blamed the Assam government, the Congress, the Trinamool Congress blamed the Assam government. In five years we will resolve most of the border disputes. Do not derail the talks because we working on a target. Without hampering the interests of Assam, we will resolve border disputes with Mizoram, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh and Meghalaya.”

A clash last month between the Assam Police and civilians on the border with Meghalaya left six people dead and several injured.

The National Human Rights Commission, NHRC, has observed that the Mukroh village firing incident in which six people were killed appears to have taken place due to the border dispute between the two states – Assam and Meghalaya.
