Itanagar: Chief Ministers of Arunachal Pradesh and Assam will meet soon to discuss various issues confronting both the states, official sources said on Thursday.

Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi who called his Arunachal counterpart Nabam Tuki yesterday and wished him on assuming office, agreed to meet soon to discuss various issue confronting both the states including the decades old boundary dispute, the sources said.

Accepting the wishes Tuki took the opportune moment to discuss inter-state welfare issues during the telephonic conversation and drew Gogoi’s attention towards the lack of basic infrastructure in both states, sources said.

Tuki pointed that such meetings would foster harmony between the two neighbouring states, sources added.

Addressing the Congress workers here yesterday, Tuki informed them that the AICC is yet to accept his resignation as Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president and that he would be holding the post till a new incumbent is appointed.

In the evening a one point resolution was adopted in the first CLP meeting held after Tuki assumed office as its leader. The CLP members present in the meet unanimously endorsed the decision of the AICC President and also expressed full faith and unstinted support to Sonia Gandhi and Nabam Tuki.
