After a violent clash between police forces of Assam and Mizoram claimed seven lives and injured over 50 people, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has said such incidents along the inter-state border are ‘unacceptable’ to people of both the states and advocated a resolution through talks.

Sarma, who has been charged with criminal conspiracy and attempt to murder in a first information report (FIR) by Mizoram Police, also spoke of keeping alive the spirit of the North East in a twitter post.

The tweet comes after Union Home Minister Amit Shah spoke to both Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and Mizoram CM Zoramthanga telephonically earlier in the day to defuse the border tension between the two Northeastern neighbours.

‘Our main focus is on keeping the spirit of North-East alive. What happened along the Assam-Mizoram border is unacceptable to the people of both states.

Honble CM @ZoramthangaCM had promised to call me post his quarantine. Border disputes can only be resolved through discussion,’ Sarma said in his tweet.
