The Congress on Monday hit out on the BJP over the violence on the Assam-Mizoram border that claimed lives of six police personnel, stating that it was a matter of shame that the tensions escalated inside a day of Union Home Amit Shah chairing a gathering to resolve the dispute.

In a press release, the Congress stated that it was a matter of nice concern that Chief Ministers of the 2 states, each belonging to the North-East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), have been overtly arguing on Twitter whereas the tensions escalated.

“Just yesterday (Sunday) the Home Minister himself had chaired a meeting with the Chief Ministers and Chief Secretaries of the North Eastern States to discuss interstate border dispute issues. What transpired between them? What were the policies to mitigate the border disputes adopted?” the Congress sought to know.

“It has become a matter of great public concern as well as appalling humour that responsible persons like Chief Ministers both belonging to same NEDA alliance are openly arguing with each other on Twitter handles and they have also tagged the Home Minister and Prime Minister.”

Taking a dig, the Congress stated that the BJP authorities gave the impression to be operating the nation via Twitter.

At least six Assam Police personnel have been killed and round 50 others, together with Cachar”s superintendent of police, injured in firing as violence intensified alongside the border with Mizoram.

Condoling the deaths, the BJP’s Assam unit tweeted, “We offer our tributes to the six Assam Police jawans martyred in firing by miscreants in the Assam-Mizoram border. May their souls rest in eternal peace.”

Opposition AIUDF additionally aired its concern over the violence.

“Had the two CM’s tried to solve the conflict through dialogue, this escalation could have been averted. Urge both the state Govt’s to find an amicable solution at the earliest and relieve the suffering of people residing in the border areas,” AIUDF MLA Ashraful Hussain tweeted.

Condemning the violence, the Assam Jatiya Parishad (AJP) stated the incident assumes extra significance because it occurred only a day after a gathering of chief ministers of the Northeastern states.

The governments in each Assam and Mizoram are a part of the NEDA, of which Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma is the convener, the AJP identified.
