Party demands detailed report on the status of investigation on the January 29 incident where 11 CPI (ML) activists were killed at Chaoldhowa in Assam’s Sonitpur district

The Arunachal Pradesh unit of the BJP on Monday expressed concern over the lackadaisical attitude of the State government as well as the Assam government and Centre over the inter-state boundary dispute between two neighbouring states.

Stating that the boundary dispute between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh should not be taken lightly, the party demanded a detailed report on the status of the investigation on the January 29 incident where 11 CPI (ML) activists were killed at Chaoldhowa in Assam’s Sonitpur district and subsequent recovery of four decomposed bodies from the area on February 22 last.

“Adequate measures are the need of the hour for the people from both the states. The government should not overlook the arising situation and should act immediately,” party spokesman Techi Necha said in a statement in Itanagar.

“We are sad to know that several organisations have re-imposed road blockade at Behali and Bargang areas in Assam since Sunday to protest the inaction of both the state governments to arrest the culprits involved in the January 29 incident,” he said.

The Congress governments of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh remained a mute spectator to the killings, torture and harassment meted out to the innocent people along the inter-state boundary, he said.

He added that both the state governments should act instead of merely giving lip services which ignited the emotion and sentiment of the people over the decades-old boundary dispute.
