Two Assam ministers to visit Aizawl for ‘meaningful dialogue’ with Mizoram

Days after the violent incident that took place along the Assam-Mizoram border, Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on August 2 said that, two Assam ministers – Atul Bora and Ashok Singhal – will visit Aizawl on August 5 for a ‘meaningful dialogue’ with the Mizoram government.

“Assam stands committed to ensure peace on its borders, paving the way for a peaceful and developed Northeast,” Himanta Biswa Sarma said.

The Assam chief minister tweeted that the ministers will be in Aizawl to aid an “early amicable resolution”.

“In aid of an early amicable resolution, I am sending my cabinet colleagues, @ATULBORA2 and @TheAshokSinghal to Aizawl on August 5, for a meaningful dialogue. Assam stands committed to ensuring peace on its borders, paving the way for a peaceful & developed Northeast,” Sarma tweeted.

After Mizoram chief minister Zoramthanga asked the state police to withdraw the FIR against the Assam officials, the Assam chief minister also reciprocated. CM Sarma directed Assam police to withdraw cases against the deputy commissioner of Mizoram’s Kolasib district and SDPO of Vairengte.

“I learn that Hon’ble CM @ZoramthangaCM has asked @mizorampolice to withdraw FIR dt 26.7.21 against our officers. I heartily reciprocate this positive gesture and ask @assampolice to withdraw cases against DC Kolasib and SDPO Virengte,” Sarma had tweeted.

“In order to build a conducive atmosphere for amicable solution to the #MizoramAssamBorder dispute & to reduce the plight of suffering citizens, I have directed @mizorampolice to withdraw FIR dt. 26.07.2021 filed at Vairengte, Kolasib district, Mizoram against all the accused persons,” CM Zoramthanga had tweeted.

Violent clashes broke out along the Assam-Mizoram border near Lailapur in Assam and Vairengte in Mizoram on July 26 where six police personnel lost their lives and around 50 others were injured.
