Govt has no will to solve border dispute

By Mahesh Goduka

SONARI, Sept 2 � �The Assam government has no political will to solve Assam-Arunachal Pradesh inter-State boundary problem. The surrendering attitude of Assam government in respect of providing security in its own boundary, updating the National Register of Indian Citizens (NRIC) should be condemned,� said Dr Sammujal Kumar Bhattacharya, advisor, All Assam Students� Union and president, North East Students� Organisation (NESO) at Charaipung today.

Representatives of 26 organisations of various ethnic communities of Assam who met the Prime Minister of India, Dr Monmohan Singh on August 27 at New Delhi, visited Charaipung area today. The members of the student bodies went upto Teok river, the boundary of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh and also addressed a meeting at Bimalapur Tiniali.

Addressing the gathering, Dr Bhattacharya condemned the August 27 decision of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh government in respect of joint patrolling by Assam Police and Arunachal Police in the area between Charaipung and the Teok river. He questioned the Assam government as to how Arunachal Police could patrol in a non-disputed area falling under Assam�s boundary. He demanded immediate withdrawal of Arunachal Police from Assam�s territory and asserted that joint patrolling would not be accepted in Assam�s land. Condemning Assam government�s attitude, Bhattacharya said Assam government has no objection in allotting land to Bangladeshis in the interest of vote bank politics but the government has not issued pattas to the small tea growers who were safeguarding the State�s boundary and demanding pattas since last 20 years. He demanded allotment of pattas to small tea growers of Charaipung within 24 hours.

The meeting was also addressed by leaders of various other student organisations.

Ground reality: Mediapersons today witnessed clear violation of August 27 decision that Arunachal Pradesh would have a patrol party in the Wanchu village (AP). But in reality the Arunachal Police have built a patrol party camp at Naharani village having armed police personnel of Arunachal and IRBN at a distance of about 5 km from Teok river within Assam�s boundary. This action of Arunachal Police has created tension in the minds of the residents of that area including small tea growers as the Assam Police has already withdrawn its additional force deployed after August 14 in the area.
