The ongoing border dispute between the northeastern states of Assam and Mizoram is worsening day by day. In a new development on the issue, the Mizoram government alleged that miscreants from the neighboring state have removed the railway tracks blocking the National Highway NH-306. 

Due to the blocking of National Highway 306, the movement of goods and services has been disrupted which is a cause of concern for the government. The Mizoram government sought intervention from the Central government. Lalbiaksangi, Mizoram’s home secretary said the miscreant’s acts blocked the only railway line which connects Bairabi railway station in the state. 

He further said that none has any right to block the national highway and railway. National highway and railway lines are public goods, a state agency, general public or any other entity has got no right to block these transportation facilities. The acts of blocking have led to disruption in the supply of goods and the movement of people. 

“Unknown offenders from Assam have blocked railway lines at Mohammedpur Railway Station and Ramnathpur Railway Station in Hailakandi district of Assam. Due to which the only railway line which connects Bairabi Railway Station in the Mizoram state has been blocked,” said Lalbiaksangi. He also added that the Silchar-Aizawl stretch of National Highway-306 has also been blocked.

He urged the Central government to take the matter into consideration and requested the Centre to take adequate measures for immediate removal of the blockade so that the movement of people and goods in the state resume quickly. The Centre’s intervention will ensure the resumption of economic activity in the state of Mizoram. 

The border dispute between Mizoram and Assam started on July 26. Before the clash between the states, Union Home Minister Amit Shah had held a meeting with the CMs of northeastern states during his visit to Meghalaya. After the violent clash, an interim agreement between the states was reached.

According to the agreement, state police forces of the states will be withdrawn and central paramilitary forces will be deployed in a 4km disputed area until a permanent solution is found.
