Mizoram lodge complain over proposed construction of temple in "disputed area" along Tripura-Mizoram border
AIZAWL / AGARTALA
The Mizoram government has lodged a protest with the Tripura administration over the proposed construction of a temple in a "disputed area" along the border of the two northeastern states, an official said on Sunday.
Mizoram Home Secretary Lalbiaksangi on Friday wrote to her Tripura counterpart Barun Kumar Sahu seeking the stoppage of the construction of a temple at Thaidawr Tlang near Phuldungsei village in Mamit district, he said.
Lalbiaksangi said the proposed construction along the disputed inter-state border could cause law and order problems.
The Mizoram government received a report that a local organisation of Tripura is attempting to construct a temple in the disputed area, the letter said.
The Survey of India was requested to facilitate a joint spot verification involving both the Mizoram and Tripura governments to resolve the inter-state boundary issue at the earliest, it said.
