The Assam and Meghalaya chief ministers will hold a second ministerial level talk on the inter-state boundary dispute in Guwahati

August 6, 2021: The Assam and Meghalaya chief ministers will hold a second ministerial level talk on the inter-state boundary dispute in Guwahati today.



The first meeting was held at Shillong where Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had discussions with Meghalaya CM Conrad Sangma over the longstanding inter-state border dispute between both states.





Earlier, in the first meeting, the Meghalaya government claimed 12 disputed places belonging to the state. The Assam government also justified with documents, saying those places belong to Assam.



After a detailed discussion, both the Assam and Meghalaya governments decided to adopt a pragmatic approach to the solution and resolve the issue in a phased manner.



Thus, both states agreed to discuss all 12 places one by one and review claims. If possible, both the chief ministers will visit all the 12 sites.
