Mizoram, Assam officials discuss security ahead of polls
Aizawl: Mizoram Chief Secretary L Tochhong and senior officials on Monday held a meeting with officials of the neighbouring Assam and discussed security and related issues on the interstate border areas as Mizoram goes to poll by the end of November.
Tochhong sought cooperation from officials of the neighbouring states during the coming assembly polls as they can play vital roles in conduct of peaceful and free and fair elections.
The meeting was convened following instructions from the Election Commission even as officials from Manipur and Tripura failed to attend the meeting due to unavoidable circumstances, an official statement said.
Deputy Commissioners and SPs of districts adjoining the three neighbouring states would be instructed to hold frequent coordination meetings with their counterparts of the districts across the border.
Tochhong was accompanied by the state Chief Electoral Officer Ashwini Kumar, senior home department and police and election department officials while Assam government was represented by Joint Secretary Mahananda Hazarika and DIG of Police Bind Kumar.
