SHILLONG, June 10: Mawhati MLA Charles Marngar has called for the resumption of interstate border talks between Assam and Meghalaya.
The second phase of the interstate border talks, which are aimed at resolving disputes on the Assam-Meghalaya border areas, has been on the back burner with no meetings held for an extended period.
Marngar, who is also a member of a regional committee on the interstate border talks, accentuated the necessity for both states to reconvene and schedule inspections of the disputed areas.
He recalled that approximately 5-6 months before the Lok Sabha elections, regional committees from both states had met in Guwahati and agreed to conduct spot inspections.
Initially, both the Assam and Meghalaya governments had shown strong commitment to resolving the first phase of the dispute and were equally enthusiastic about addressing the remaining six contentious areas.
However, this momentum appears to have dissipated, and no further meetings or joint inspections have occurred.
The unresolved areas of difference include Khanduli & Psiar, Block I & Block II, Borduar, Langpih, Nongwah-Mawtamur, and Desh Doomreah.
