New Delhi: Congress MP Rahul Gandhi has criticised Union Home Minister Amit Shah over the violence at the Assam-Mizoram border.
The former Congress supremo alleged that Shah has failed the country by ‘sowing hatred and distrust into the lives of people and India is now reaping its dreadful consequences’.
“Heartfelt condolences to the families of those who’ve been killed. I hope the injured recover soon,” Rahul tweeted, tagging a purported video of the violence.
According to reports, five Assam Police personnel were killed while defending the ‘constitutional boundary’ of the state with Mizoram and more than 60 people injured, including an SP, as the festering border dispute between the two northeastern states erupted into a bloody conflict on Monday.
