Fight over uranium

Till date the southern states were infamous for boundary disputes. But this malaise seems to have spread to the north-east where Assam and Meghalaya are locked in a border row over a remote village Lampih following the potential discovery of uranium in this tiny hamlet. To ensure that Lampih remains with it. the Assam Government has dangled lots of carrots including a health centre and motorable roads for 31,200 villagers who have to travel for six hours on horseback to reach the nearest road.
