Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Monday said the situation along the Assam-Mizoram border is peaceful now and maintained that there is no fresh encroachment from the other side.

Sarma also informed that Assam has got back around 200 hectares of land in the last 3-4 months. Besides, Sarma added that it is important to secure the territory without provoking anybody.
