Assam Meghalaya CMs to meet Union Home Minister before taking final call on areas of difference


Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma and Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma will soon meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah before taking a final decision on the six areas of difference.

Addressing media persons after a meeting held between the two CMs, Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong said the meeting was fruitful but inconclusive.


“More or less we are almost completed to reach the agreement in those areas whichever we have already inspected. Now again both the chief ministers have directed to bring out all the detailed reports and thereafter one more meeting will be held between the two CMs,” he added.


Tynsong also informed that the two chief ministers will also be meeting the Union Home Minister.


“They will be meeting even the union home minister and hopefully before January 21 maybe they will come back and the final agreement will be made public to both the states of Assam and Meghalaya,” he said.

When asked, the deputy chief minister said the meeting could take place because the two chief ministers are determined to resolve the long pending boundary dispute once and for all.


He however said vested interests are always there as they do not want this issue to be resolved as if it is resolved their interest will not be there anymore.


“Therefore, I am telling you sincerely both the chief ministers are determined to resolve this issue once and for all and this is for the interest of both the states – Meghalaya and Assam,” Tynsong reiterated.
