Announcing the decision at the end of two-day state

While the state-level coordination committee would have
15 members, the district-level bodies would comprise seven

Union government to provide special financial assistance for
launching developmental schemes in the border areas with an
aim to check migration from there, Chufal said.

party`s Vice Presidents Najma Heptullah and B S Koshiyari,
