Patriotic People’s Front Assam demand probe over encroachers along Assam-Mizoram border
A Northeast India-based nationalist citizen’s forum is urging the Union government in New Delhi to amicably settle the border issues and also identify the encroachers in the disputed areas.
The Patriotic People’s Front Assam (PPFA) in a media statement paid heartfelt tributes to the deceased and demanded a clarification from the Mizoram government on the rules of engagement.
“It was very shocking that the violent incident took place within 48 hours of the Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s visit to Shillong, where in fact he met both the concerned chief ministers Pu Zoramthanga and Himanta Biswa Sarma, who incidentally is the convener of the North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA),” said a PPFA statement.
It may be noted, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were deployed at the affected Lailapur-Vairengte disputed areas to help both the State police forces to maintain the law and order situation.
“It is so unfortunate that the encroachers continue engaging in various criminal activities in those areas and on the way to safeguard those illegal migrants, our police personnel have to face the consequences,” said the PPFA statement.
