A group of people leads by Vivek Das, a local CPI (ML) leader from Borgang in Assam’s Sonitpur district held a bike-rally at Tarasso village on Thursday. They conceded red flags and shouted anti-Arunachal and derogative slogans hurting tribal sentiments.
Chief Minister Nabam Tuki arranged an emergency meeting on Thursday, which was attended by the chief secretary, home commissioner, DGP and IGP, a source informed.
Tuki directed the state police to instantly organize additional security forces at Tarasso to recover the confidence of the fear-stricken villagers and maintain law and order.
Tuki also wrote to Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi convey displeasure on the repeated acts of breach of status quo on the part of the people from the neighbouring state. He called for instant intervention of Gogoi to take legal action against the intruders for creating tension along the inter-state boundary.
Tuki added that if strict action was not taken against the intruders soon, the condition may snowball into a major disagreement that will not promise well for both the states, the source added.
