Citing newspapers reports that claimed that Meghalaya was carrying out border survey using drones in Khanapara area in Guwahati under Kamrup Metropolitan District of Assam Huda expressed dissatisfaction over the government’s failure to respond on the report of an all-party Assembly delegation that had recently visited the tense interstate border with Mizoram, following violent clashes on July 26 that left seven people dead on the Assam side.

Opposition MLA, Phani Talukdar of the AIUDF, said a marking after the survey was done right in front of his Khanapara residence.
Speaker Biswajit Daimary, however, refused to allow the adjournment motion.

Soon after the speaker refused their demand, the combined opposition comprising the Congress, the AIUDF, the CPI(M) and one Independent legislator staged a walk-out in protest.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pijush Hazarika said that the drone survey was being done with due permission from Kamrup Metropolitan District authorities and a similar exercise will be conducted by Assam as well.
Hazarika said the current status of encroachment by different neighbouring states has been placed in the House in reply to a question put forth by one of the legislators.
