Congress MLA from Pasighat West constituency in Arunachal Pradesh – Ninong Ering has slammed the Assam Government for maintaining an “aggressive stance” against neighbouring states. 

Speaking to this correspondent Pasighat West MLA Ninong Ering said that Assam is ‘behaving’ like a bully with neighbouring states by maintaining an “aggressive stance” over possession of land. 

“Assam is like big brother. But that doesn’t give it the right to bully neighbouring states,” Arunachal Pradesh MLA Ninong Ering said. 

Ering was reacting to a media report that he shared in his twitter handle. According to the media report, “armed personnel of the Assam battalion reportedly destroyed a paddy field at Longkhojan village in Kanubari area of Longding district of Arunachal Pradesh on July 19”.
