Ready For Arrest if it Brings Peace With Mizoram: Assam CM

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said he is ready to be arrested by Mizoram Police to bring peace between Mizoram and Assam. The chief minister said while speaking to reporters that he will not apply for bail to avoid any arrest by Mizoram Police. The statement came after Mizoram Chief Secretary said that the state’s CM had charges of attempt to murder and criminal conspiracy levelled against his counterpart. These are likely to be withdrawn.

“If arresting me brings the situation back to normal, I am ready for it. I will not seek bail from Gauhati High Court,” Assam CM Sarma said. However, Sarma said he will protect his officers and will not “allow Mizoram police to investigated an incident which occurred in Assam.”

Assam has also summoned seven Mizoram officials. Union Home Minister Amit Shah talked telephonically with both the chief ministers to bring down tensions between the two states. Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga tweeted after the call, “As per discussions with the Home Minister and Assam Chief Minister, we are ready to resolve the Mizoram-Assam border issue together through meaningful dialogue.”
