As part of its confidence building exercise along Assam-Mizoram Border , the Hailakandi district administration is organising community level meetings along the troubled Assam-Mizoram interstate border to instill a sense of security and confidence among the people living close to the interstate border.
Leading the campaign from the front, Deputy Commissioner, Hailakandi, Adil Khan while interacting with the people told them about the slew of measures taken up by the administration to maintain law and order along the interstate border and the communiques transmitted from time to time to the adjoining Kolasib district administration of Mizoram to maintain status quo along the border and to take pre-emptive measures to thwart the MZP activists from constructing a resting shed in Assam’s territory.
Khan also told them that the border row issue had been taken up by Government of Assam not only with the Government of Mizoram but also the Central Government. He told the gathering that both the neighbouring States were holding talks to resolve the border row amicably.
The Deputy Commissioner exhorted upon the people to carry on their daily avocations without any fear or inhibition and to maintain cordial relations with the people on other side of the border, as they have been cohabiting for so many years. He urged them to be vigilant and to see to it that anti social elements do not create disturbance and incite or provoke hatred among the people living on both sides of the interstate border.
At the directive of Khan, senior civil and police officials have fanned out to different areas falling under Jamira police outpost and Ramnathpur police station close to the Assam-Mizoram interstate border to instill confidence among the people.
Meanwhile, Khan said though the MZP activists have not returned back after they withdrew on Saturday, the administration will not lower down its guard and keep a constant vigil on the border. He said Assam Police personnel and CRPF will continue to be deployed till the situation limps back to normalcy.
