Movement of trucks carrying essential items has resumed after Assam and Mizoram agreed to restore peace and normalcy on the interstate boundary.
Trucks that got stranded on both sides of the border since the clash between the people of the two states on Saturday night have started moving since yerterday.
Kolasib district Superintendent of Police Vanlalfaka Ralte, told PTI that some trucks carrying essential commodities have entered the state under police escort on Thursday morning from neighbouring Cachar district of Assam.
A Cachar district official said, “More than 140 trucks have crossed over to Mizoram since this morning. A few trucks have also reached Lailapur from across the border.”
Meanwhile, Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga has instructed officials to ask security forces not to withdraw from the border areas till a final decision is made by the Centre on the matter and normalcy returns to the area.
Trucks resumed movement only after Assam agreed to restore peace and normalcy, (which they partially did). Mizoram had nothing but peace and normalcy on their side, they ensured that they were well fed. The trucks did not even need protection of any kind once they were on Mizoram side. There are many biased and false news reports out there siding with Assam, do not believe them.
