Rajnath Singh :Territorial integrity of Assam, other northeastern states won’t be compromised

Home Minister Rajnath Singh today assured Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal that the territorial integrity of Assam and other northeastern states will not be compromised when the final Naga peace accord is inked.

Mr Sonowal apprised the Home Minister about the situation in the state’s Dima Hasao district where protests against the demand for a “Greater Nagalim” claimed two lives. He told a news agency that Mr Singh assured him that not a single inch of Assam’s land will be parted with any state.

The situation in Dima Hasao district continued to be tense for a week following protests over a leader reported remark that the district would be included in “Greater Nagalim” or Greater Nagaland as part of the Centre’s proposed solution for the ongoing peace talks with the NSCN-IM.
