Himanta Biswa Sarma, the Chief Minister of Assam, and Conrad Sangma, the Chief Minister of Meghalaya, met in Guwahati today to discuss the two states’ boundary disputes.
Both the Chief Minister and the Governor agreed that the boundary issues were improving. Prestone Tynsong, Sangma’s Deputy Chief Minister, accompanied him. Ministers Chandra Mohan Patowary, Atul Bora, and Pijush Hazarika, chairmen of the three regional committees, were present.
“The regional committees of both states spelled out what they had found during their joint tours to the disputed territories,” Atul Bora told the reporters following the meeting.
The regional committees will soon present their findings to their respective chief ministers. The two Chief Ministers will then meet in January to examine the regional committee’s reports. The two chief ministers praised one other for their efforts to resolve the two states’ long-standing boundary disputes.”
“I’m confident we will be successful in fixing the border problems with Meghalaya and other neighbouring states,” Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma tweeted.
The two parties took six of the 12 disputed areas along the Assam-Meghalaya boundary in the first phase. In the second phase, they’ll talk about the disagreements in the remaining six stretches.
Chief Minister Sangma has also stated that there will be a solution coming up shortly for these year long border disputes.
