Mizoram on Sunday assured Assam that it will withdraw its forces from the tense inter-state border areas, but Dispur said that even though it welcomed the decision, it was “waiting to see action on the ground”. Mizoram made the offer during a video conference between the chief secretaries which was chaired by Union Home Secretary Ajay Kumar Bhalla.

Assam claims that Mizoram forces, including its IRB and Mizoram Police have been camping in various places inside Assam’s territory for nearly a month now. “As of now, their (Mizoram’s) forces are stationed at five locations inside Assam’s territory in the two districts of Cachar and Karimganj. We have not seen any sign of withdrawal till (Sunday) evening,” DIG (Southern Range) DK Dey said over phone.

Meanwhile, addressing the press after the meeting chaired by the Union Home Secretary, Mizoram chief secretary L. Chuaungo said a unanimous decision was taken that Mizoram will withdraw its forces from the disputed areas and the blockade on NH-306 on the Assam side will be lifted.
