The long-standing border dispute between Mizoram and Assam flared on Monday. The clashes led to the death of more than four Assam Police personnel. The violent clashes injured around 80 people. 

The border dispute between the two northeastern States Mizoram and Assam started with the pelting of stones, followed by the burning of farmer’s huts. Even shots were fired; the clashes vandalized government vehicles at the border. 

Union Home Minister Amit Shah has recently held a meeting with the Chief Ministers of Northeastern states during his visit to Meghalaya for two days. The clash began after the meeting. 

Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga in the meeting spoke about the border dispute in the northeastern States. The prevalence of border disputes dates back to the colonial era. To bring development in the states these disputes have to settle down. 

On the violent clashes between the borders, Zoramthanga spoke with the Chief Minister of Assam Himanta Sarma. He said that the area which is claimed by Assam has been used for over 100 years by the people from Mizoram. 

Chief Ministers of both the States urged for central government’s intervention. Zoramthanga shared a clip on Twitter and tagged Prime Minister Modi, home minister Amit Shah and Assam newly elected Chief Minister Himanta Sarma. 

Himanta Biswa Sarma also shared a clip on the Microblogging website Twitter. He also urged Amit Shah and the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) to intervene in the matter. Amid the clash between the States, the two Chief Ministers also clashed on Twitter. Two Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) companies have been deployed at Lailapur-Vairengte disputed site between the two States. 

Amit Shah, Union Home Minister asked the Chief Ministers of Mizoram and Assam to resolve the border tension peacefully. A similar incident took place in October 2020 and in February 2018 between the two Northeastern states.
