GUWAHATI, May 18 � The All Assam Lawyers� Association (AALA) today came down heavily on the State Government for its failure to settle border disputes with its neighbouring States.
Warning that a Lampi-like situation might recur anytime if the government sat idle, the AALA has urged the Chief Minister to seek the intervention of the Centre so that long-standing border disputes are settled over the discussion table.
In a release issued to the press, the AALA said that post-Lampi sentiments and the consequent communal divide could further aggravate the situation and stoke the dormant embers in other parts of the State�s borders.
�So it is time that the government woke up and faced the grim ground realities and expeditiously took effective measures to defuse volatile situation,� said the release.
The AALA has appealed to the State govt, the Govt of Meghalaya, the Centre, all the other neighbouring States, political parties and all other socio-economic organisations to unitedly solve the border disputes.
