Taxi stand at D Sector turns Merapani tense

By CORRESPONDENT

JORHAT, Oct 19 � Tension has been prevailing in the upper Merapani area after the establishment of the D-Sector Merapani taxi stand at that place yesterday. The Nagas also prevented the taxi cabs of Assam�s side from going to Nagaland crossing the newly set up taxi stand there. They demanded that every taxi owner would have to register their vehicles with the taxi stand by paying Rs 500 per vehicle. This was informed by Manoar Hussain, executive member of the central committee, AASU.

As a result of it no taxi of Assam could enter the neighbouring state without being registered with the taxi stand.

On the other hand, when contacted, Upper Assam Commissioner Iftikar Hussain told this correspondent that normalcy prevails throughout the sector D of the Assam-Nagaland border. There is little possiblity of occurance of any untoward incident at those places.

He further said that during his recent visit, he took stock of the law and order situation of upper Merapani area. �The neutral force deployed in the area is enough to maintain peace and protect the lives and property of the people living in the disputed border area�, he added.

Citing an example, he said that a person named Harej Ali, who was born and brought up at upper Merapani area and whose recidence was burnt down by the Naga miscreants recently contacted the Upper Assam Commissioner over phone saying that normalcy was prevailing at that place. Ali was provided a compensation of Rs 10,000 from the Assam Government�s fund.
