NEW DELHI: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and his Meghalaya counterpart Conrad Sangma on Thursday met Union Home Minister Amit Shah to discuss the way forward to amicably settle decades-old inter-state border issues.
On Wednesday, the two chief ministers had said that the Assam and Meghalaya governments had agreed to resolve the disputes and came to a consensus on the villages and identified natural boundaries such as rivers and forests.
“I along with HCM Meghalaya Sri @SangmaConrad met Adarniya Griha Mantri Sri @AmitShah ji in New Delhi. We apprised Hon HM on the outcomes of discussions held between Assam & Meghalaya governments to resolve the border disputes amicably. We’re grateful for his guidance,” Sarma tweeted.
