Both the state’s Chief Ministers – Himanta Biswa Sarma of Assam and  Zoramthanga of Mizoram – are banking their hopes on finding the last solution to the two state’s long pending border dispute.

Mizoram CM Zoramthanga had on Wednesday tweeted, “Tomorrow the 5th of August, 2021 representatives from Assam Govt. led by senior Minister will meet representatives of Mizoram Govt. led by senior Minister. I am sure important steps will be achieved for the solution of the border problem.”

Areas of difference

Three districts of Barak Valley in southern Assam- Hailakandi, Cachar and Karimganj shares 165-km-long border with three other districts of Mizoram – Mamit, Kolasib and Aizawl over which there are disputes in almost five locations spread across the three districts.

Of those, a 195-square-mile stretch between Lailapur in Cachar and Vairengte in Kolasib is most volatile that saw two major violences and sporadic skirmishes over the past 10 months since October last year.
