Meghalaya approaches Assam on boundary dispute
Mawsynram: To solve the forty-year-old boundary dispute with Assam, Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma on Friday said they have directly approached the Assam government.
Speaking at a program here, Sangma said the previous strategy of seeking the Centre`s intervention "did not" yield results.
He said his government has submitted all the records, maps and notifications to the Assam government to stake claim over the disputed areas.
The chief minister also informed that recently a meeting between the chief secretaries of the two states was held in a cordial atmosphere and Assam government had sought forsome more time to study Meghalaya`s documents.
He said Assam was not agreeable with Meghalaya`s proposal asking the Centre to set a Boundary Commission in solving the boundary issue between the two neighbouring states.
