The Meghalaya government has decided to extend the period for preparing the modalities for the proposed talks with Assam to resolve the long-pending inter-State boundary disputes.
“The cabinet has decided to extend the time for preparing the modalities following the request from chief secretary WMS Pariat,” Meghalaya chief minister Mukul Sangma said.
Sangma said that the cabinet fully understands the complications of the vexed border dispute which had been lying pending for so many years.
“It is not an easy task for the chief secretary to prepare the modalities within a given time frame, the chief minister added.
Sangma modalities for border talks would be framed within 45 days to solve the border dispute.
Earlier, the Meghalaya chief secretary WMS Pariat and his Assam counterpart PC Sharma had sought more time from the government to frame the respective government to prepare the modalities for border talks.
State chief secretary WMS Pariat yesterday apprised the cabinet of the important issues which need to be thrashed out and strategies to be adopted, Sangma informed.
“The chief secretary is still waiting for some more suggestions and is also trying to get hold of some important documents and further waiting for the report from the government constituted sub-committee on the Inter-State boundary,” the chief minister said.
