July 20, 2021: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma would be meeting his Meghalaya counterpart Conrad Sangma in Shillong on July 23 to discuss the long-pending border issue between the two states.



The meeting will take place ahead of the crucial meet of Northeastern Chief Ministers with Union Home Minister Amit Shah.





Assam CM Sarma is expected to be accompanied by Assam Chief Secretary Jishnu Barua, Additional Chief Secretary and Principal Secretary Home.



Presentations about the situation along the borders are likely to be made at this crucial meeting.



Meghalaya CM Sangma has already had an almost 45 minute long one-on-one meet with his Assam counterpart on the border issue.



Union Home Minister Amit Shah in January had urged all the states in the region to solve their boundary disputes by August 15, 2022 when the country celebrates 75 years of Independence.
