LUCKNOW-The Permanence of Delusion

(where two APBN outposts had been functioning) as far back as in December 1969. The place is clearly inside Assam, according to available maps, About the same time, NAP established three other outposts in Bekajan (1.6 km inside Assam), Gomariguri (6 km) and Bheluguri (1 km). In January 1970, the NAP established another outpost 15 km inside Assam at New Sonowal in Disoi Valley reserve. It is possible that the Nagaland Government wants to occupy these territories in order to prove their rights over them. At New Sonowal, the NAP has also put up a check-post to demand inner-line permits from passengers. Further up, near the Disoi bridge, the APBN has two outposts and the Assam forest department also maintains a check-post. The boundary is defined clearly by the Disoi river. How long this farce of confrontation will go on is more than one can say at present.
