Guwahati: Days after Assam police withdrew FIR against Mizoram Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament, Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga directed the state police to withdraw the FIR against Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma and six others.
Chief Minister Zoramthanga said that the withdrawal of the FIR will create a cordial environment for reaching an ‘amicable’ solution to resolve the Assam-Mizoram border issue.
“In order to build a conducive atmosphere for amicable solution to the #MizoramAssamBorder dispute & to reduce the plight of suffering citizens,I have directed @mizorampolice to withdraw FIR dt. 26.07.2021 filed at Vairengte, Kolasib District, Mizoram against all the accused persons,” Zoramthanga tweeted.
As a goodwill gesture, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday directed his policemen to withdraw the FIR filed against Mizoram Rajya Sabha member K. Vanlalvena following discussion with Union Home Minister Amit Shah and his Mizoram counterpart Zoramthanga.
The Assam chief minister and convener of NEDA, in which the ruling Mizo National Front (MNF) in Mizoram is part of it, said that his government is committed to ensuring peace along the state border with Mizoram.
The Assam Police had earlier registered an FIR against K. Vanlalvena, who has been accused of involvement in a conspiracy leading to the bloody clash on July 26 following his abusive remarks.
