Tension is running high along the Assam-Nagaland border as several Assam organizations continued to stage a road blockade on the Mariani (Assam)-Mokokchung (Nagaland) road in Jorhat district since November 15.

Nagaland MLA and advisor Border Affairs, Mhathung Yanthan said the deputy commissioners (DCs) of Mokokchung and Jorhat were in touch to ease tension, Hindustan Times reported.

"As of now, the situation is under control," he said.

Yanthan said there was not much the state governments could do as the border issue between the two states was pending in the Supreme Court.
