Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee

Dr. Shyama Prasad Mookerjee was a founding member of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, whose election symbol was Deepak. It was under the leadership of Mukherjee that the Jana Sangh opposed the partition of India. Let us tell you that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was later formed from the Jan Sangh itself. After the Emergency imposed by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, a new party 'Janata Party' was formed by merging the major political parties of India including Jana Sangh. Although Shyama Prasad Mookerjee was part of the first Union Cabinet, he criticized the policies of the Congress government.

He later resigned from the cabinet on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir. On 8 May 1953, Mukherjee set out on a visit to Jammu and Kashmir, where he was arrested and died in prison on 23 June 1953. Ever since Jawaharlal Nehru rejected the demand for an inquiry into his death, the answer to the question as to what happened to Syama Prasad Mookerjee in the room in Kashmir in which he was placed under house arrest has been lost in the dark.

The Center has no plans to have a neutral agency like the CBI probe the recent clashes along the Assam-Mizoram border , but is trying to resolve the dispute peacefully at the earliest. Two top government officials said that the central government does not want to take any such decision which will worsen the situation.

He said that the central government wants a peaceful solution to the current border dispute between Assam and Mizoram and Union Home Minister Amit Shah is in constant touch with both the Chief Ministers- Himanta Biswa Sarma (Assam) and Zoramthanga (Mizoram). Zoramthanga also tweeted, "I still hope for an amicable solution to the Assam-Mizoram tension from the Center."

He also tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Chief Ministers of Meghalaya, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Tripura and Sikkim in his tweet. At the same time, the Chief Minister of Assam said in his tweet, "Our main objective is to keep the spirit of the Northeast alive. What happened on the Assam-Mizoram border is unacceptable to the people of both the states. The border dispute can be resolved only through discussion.

The clash took place on 26 July

Asked whether the probe into the July 26 clash was likely to be handed over to a neutral agency like the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), both the top government officials said no decision has been taken in this regard yet. Five Assam policemen and a civilian were killed and more than 50 people were injured in the clash. Apart from this, neither state of Assam or Mizoram has made any formal request for a neutral agency to conduct an inquiry, he said.

One of these officials said, "Both the state governments are cooperating and the central government is confident that there will be no more clashes on the border." FIRs have been registered against political leaders, police and civil administration officials. Both the government officials mentioned the steps taken to reduce tension along the Assam-Mizoram border.

On July 28, a meeting was held under the chairmanship of Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla.

The Chief Secretaries and Director Generals of Police of both the states participated in a meeting chaired by Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla on July 28 in which it was decided to deploy a neutral force (CRPF) at the conflict site. Earlier, the two chief secretaries had met in a bilateral meeting in Delhi. After this, the central government issued an advisory to both the states asking them to maintain peace on the inter-state border. Both officials said the July 26 violence was a "sporadic" incident and such incidents are unlikely to happen again in future.
