Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma envoy calls on Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday in an “unofficial” meeting to discuss the decades-long boundary between the two States.
The issue related to the boundary dispute with Assam was discussed during the meeting of the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) held ahead of Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s visit to the state on July 24, issues of alleged irregularities in Power and Social Welfare departments of Meghalaya.
Sangma also stated that “I don’t want to show the cards right now but as I said a lot of homework has gone into how we plan to move forward on this. At this point in time, it will not be proper to discuss those details but as I said, we are focusing on the fact that whatever solution we come up with must be amicable and must be a solution that is going to be acceptable to the people of both the states,”
The suggestion regarding setting up boundary commission issue will also be discussed, Sangma said.
Lastly, Sangma also added that “This will require not just a commission — if you say a commission to look into the facts and figures, but it is a lot to do with the political will also — so we have to really see it from all angles. We could look into that suggestion but nothing has been decided yet,”.
