We will try to resolve Assam–Meghalaya interstate boundary row: CM Conrad Sangma



Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Thursday committed that the ruling MDA coalition will ensure that discussions on the Assam –Meghalaya interstate boundary row would be looked into and expressed hope to arrive in an amicable solution.

“This government is committed to ensure that we can take discussions forward and hopeful that some kind of solution in the years ahead would be reached as the state government is committed towards this,” said Chief Minister Conrad Sangma.

Chief Minister Conrad Sangma said, "From the beginning this issue has been there and deliberations have been held at different levels."

The Chief Minister further said that last year he was supposed to meet the Assam Chief Minister in March or April to complete a discussion over the issue, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic it stalled the proposed meeting.

“Discussion will only take place this year when the upcoming Assam elections are over,” added Sangma.
