A protest march was taken by several organisations here today demanding immediate solution of the long-standing boundary dispute between Assam and Mizoram.

The organisations, All Barak Youth and Students Association, Dalit Sena, several local clubs among others, alleged that a few days back the pillar between Assam-Mizoram border was destroyed by unidentified miscreants in the area and tension has been prevailing since.

The organisations urged both Assam and Mizoram Governments to resolve the issue at the earliest or else it may lead to law and order situation, spokesperson of All Barak Youth and Students’ Association Baharul Islam Barbhuiya said.

The organisations also alleged two prominent organisations of Mizoram, Young Man Association (YMA) and Mizo Zirlai (MZP) were primarily responsible for occupying Assam’s land in Cachar district since 2007.

The organisations also submitted a memorandum to Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi through Cachar Deputy Commissioner Haren Dev Mahanta.
