Assam-Mizoram meeting in Delhi on Tuesday

 NEW DELHI: The Centre is holding a chief secretary level meeting in Delhi to mend the widening fences between Assam and Mizoram on March 20.

 

Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba will chair meeting to settle the boundary dispute between the two north eastern states in the wake of protests by students. Satyendra Garg, Joint Secretary attached for the region will also attend the meeting.

Rajnath Singh took the initiative after Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla and his Assam counterpart Sarbananda Sonowal moved the Union Home Minister for a negotiated settlement.

In a letter, Thanhawla reminded Singh that the last time a dialogue process was initiated to resolve the dispute was in 1995-96.

The situation along the Assam-Mizoram border started simmering when Assam police resorted to lathicharge to control some protesting students who wanted to erect a building on the disputed site.
