The border discussion of Assam and Meghalaya is almost settled now, as the agreement reaches 98%.

Assam-Meghalaya dispute settled:

The CM of Meghalaya Sangma on January 27, said that almost 98% of the differences over the interstate border disputes regarding six areas have been resolved between Assam and Meghalaya governments.

After attending a Cabinet meeting on January 27, CM Sangma said that soon both the chief ministers would sit for the final round of discussions to sort differences between the remaining parties.

Statement by CM Sangma:

He said, “The union home minister Amit Shah is likely to summon both me and Assam chief minister within a week and we want to resolve the remaining differences in these six areas before that. Both the governments have reached at almost 98% agreement on settling border disputes between the two states in these six areas of difference. The remaining will be resolved in the next sitting hopefully.”

About the agreement:

The areas of differences to be taken up for final settlement in the ‘first phase’ of the understanding were Hahim, Gizang, Tarabari, Boklapara, Khanapara-Pillingkata and Ratacherra. Six other disputed areas will be discussed in the next phase.

On January 20, CM Sarma and Sangma met union home minister Amit Shah in New Delhi and apprised him of the progress made thus far in regards to resolving border disputes between the two states.

Solution after years of dispute:

The Governments of both the states came to this solution to resolve their border disputes in six of the 12 “areas of difference” along the 884-km boundary after years.

According to the proposed recommendations for the 36.79 square km of land, Assam will keep 18.51 square km and give the remaining 18.28 square km to Meghalaya.

However, the leaders of several Opposition parties in Assam objected to the recommendations, expressing worry that their state was giving up more than Meghalaya and saying that further consultations and discussions in the legislature were necessary.
