Assam-M’laya border deal: Karbi Students Association opposes give & take policy

The Karbi Students Association (KSA) has come out in opposition to the recent deal inked between Assam and Meghalaya over the inter-state border dispute. The KSA took out a protest

The Karbi Students Association (KSA) has come out in opposition to the recent deal inked between Assam and Meghalaya over the inter-state border dispute.

The KSA took out a protest rally yesterday and marched to Mokoilum in West Karbi Anglong which is to be given to Meghalaya under the give and take policy under which the border deal was signed.

Scores of KSA members and students participated in the protest march and reiterated that they will not part with any portion of West Karbi Anglong district to Meghalaya.

KSA Publicity Secretary Moniram Kongkat Teron said that they reject the give and take policy under which the border deal has been inked.

Teron further added that the boundaries of the district must be kept intact and threatened further stir if their demands are not met.

Meanwhile, the KSA students marched to Mokoilum with the intention of holding a public meeting there but were halted by the police from doing so citing the law and order problem.

The KSA submitted a memorandum to Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council CEM Tuliram Ronghang on the matter and appealed to Ronghang to take up the matter with the Assam government and oppose it.

The memorandum was given to the police personnel by the KSA leaders to the police at the spot where they were stopped from marching ahead.

Noteworthy here is that the border deal between Assam and Meghalaya under the give and take policy has been opposed by various fronts in Meghalaya too.
