Lal Thanhawla Seeks Creation of Boundary Commission To Settle Boundary Issues With Assam

Aizawl, Jul 9 : Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla today told the state Assembly that he had asked the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to constitute a Boundary Commission to settle boundary disputes with Assam.

Intervening during question hour, Lal Thanhawla said, "Constitution of boundary commission was the need of the hour to prevent bloodshed and violence in the region by finding amicable solution to the border disputes with Assam."

Replying to a query from Lalruatkima of the opposition Mizo National Front (MNF), Land Revenue and Settlement Minister R Romawia said that the state government's accepted boundary with neighbouring Assam was the border accepted in the treaty signed between the then Mizo chief Suakpuilala and the British government representatives in 1875.

He said that Boundary Committee was formed to collect documents to prove the veracity of the claims of Mizoram.
