Assam to move Supreme Court seeking resolution of border dispute with Mizoram, says CM Himanta Biswa Sarma

The Assam government has decided to move the Supreme Court within 15 days to resolve the inter-state boundary dispute with Mizoram amicably.

This development comes at a time when tensions have been running high along the Assam-Mizoram border following the July 26 violence.

“If we are wrong then the Supreme Court will say you are wrong, if we are right, the apex court will say you are right. So why we should fight among ourselves,” Himanta Biswa Sarma said.

Chief Minister Himanata Biswa Sharma on Sunday said he doesn’t mind the neighboring state filing an FIR against him, but would not allow state officers to be investigated.

“I’m happy if filing an FIR against me resolves the issue, I’ll go and appear before any police station. But I will not allow our officers to be investigated. We will go to Supreme Court to resolve the boundary dispute,” said Sarma.
