Joint mechanism to defuse tension

A joint mechanism would be devised to defuse the Assam-Nagaland border tension.

This was simple what Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju told reporters after meeting Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and his Nagaland counterpart in Guwahati on Thursday.

Before leaving for Golaghat, Rijiju said that the senior officials from both states will meet frequently at a designated place so that no lapses occur in future. The mechanism will be worked out as soon as possible.

He further said that the government was looking to reinforce the central forces and that there is need to deploy more CRPF men along the border.

According to the Union minister, the clash broke out because of lack of understanding at the local level. There are some misunderstandings that flare up the issue. Rumour and counter rumours also work towards it.
