People from various districts in Mizoram have harvested fruits and vegetables from their fields and brought them to the state capital Aizawl in a generous gesture. These were then distributed free of charge to those affected by the economic embargo.
Despite the neighbouring state's declaration that the "economic blockade" established by numerous organisations on National Highway 306 has been lifted, officials in Mizoram said on Saturday that no vehicle has entered the state from Assam since the border conflict. People in Silchar's everyday lives have been disrupted as a result of the Assam-Mizoram border battle, with many experiencing revenue losses as a result of the closure of the inter-state border.
Six Assam police officers and a civilian were murdered in violent skirmishes along the two states' border, turning the border issue into a full-fledged crisis. The Assam-Mizoram border, as well as the Cachar-Kolasib districts, has been in a tense eyeball-to-eyeball condition for the past month, with security troops from both states posted there.
