A huge area of deforested land seen in assam- mizoram border through drone images.

As known about the recent Assam-Mizoram border dispute. After solving the issue Assam Government has maintained to keep the boundary of Assam protected and sacred but in the meanwhile Mizoram questioned about it and the Chief Secretary of Mizoram states that “Survey of India’s Map has been drawn out of imagination on the paper”, into which he also added “The map has never been verified”. This statement of Mizoram’s Chief Secretary has compelled Government of India to deploy Shasastra Seema Bal in Assam and Border Security Forces in Mizoram to prevent any further disputes. The Assam Police made camps fir the SSB jawans inside the territory of Assam but the Mizoram Government has set up the camps for their forces in Assam that the Government of Assam says they have trespassed. On 13th November, Divisional Forest Officer, Cachhar Sunnydeo Choudhury, and SP Cachhar, Bhanwarlal Meena went to the border area to inspect the situation but after a certain point they were not allowed to pass. To maintain peace, they negotiated with them and agreed on returning but decided to inspect the secluded area with a drone. To this, they found unbelievable results. As DFO Sunnydeo Choudhury states, “We have seen in images that trees have been cut to make a huge area plain. That is the area where the BSF camp been set up. We have no clue where the wood is and how many trees have been cut down. We will go for further inspection in the next couple of days”. To this he also added “Whatever the border dispute is, the two governments along with the central government are looking into it. But the forest is important and it’s protection is a must”. Although, the blockade that was created by the locals of the border area has been withdrawn by them after the orders from Dispur. The highway has resumed to it’s previous state but the Mizoram has still kept it’s forces deployed in Assam.
