  • In its meeting held today, 18.10.2020, the Cabinet expressed regret over the unilateral and provocative acts of disturbing public peace and harmony in the border areas at three locations - Thinghlun, Saihapui ‘V’ and Vairengte - of Mizoram by the district administrations of Cachar and Karimganj districts and expects that the Government of Assam will take urgent measures to restore normalcy in these areas.
