ITANAGAR: Arunachal Pradesh Assembly Speaker Nabam Rebia today alleged that the Assam government has started construction of a beat house at Ragaso village in Papum Pare district of Arunachal.
"An official team led by Papum Pare Deputy Commissioner (DC) Taye Kayi was not allowed to proceed to Radaso village by Assam Police. They could not even go there by other roads as all bridges and culverts were found damaged which reflected some hidden motive," said Rebia who represents Doimukh Assembly seat under which the village falls.
The DC-led team has proceeded on foot through Balijan-Taraso road via Ramghat and the latest situation would be known later, he told reporters.
The two states are locked in boundary dispute for long and a case in this regard is pending in Supreme Court.
It was unfortunate that Assam is insisting on its constitutional boundary based on the 1951 Bordoloi Commission report notified on 23-02-51, which was never accepted by Arunachal, he said.
Chief Minister Nabam Tuki and chief secretary spoke to their Assam counterparts requesting a halt in the process while Tuki also drew the attention of Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju, he said.
