CM’s of Assam and Meghalaya joint visits to border disputed area Langpih

Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma and his Assam colleague Himanta Biswa Sarma paid a combined visit to Langpih village in West Khasi Hills district today to advance the Chief Ministerial-level talks to address the long-pending border dispute between the two states.

Langpih is one of the 12 areas where the two states diverge. It should be noted that the first joint inspection of interstate border areas took place on October 5 of this year.

Regional committees comprised of local MLAs and officials were constituted by the two governments a few months ago. These committees were in charge of interacting with villages in the contested areas, recording their opinions, and submitting reports for review and discussion at a higher level. The two chief ministers’ joint visit will be part of a confidence-building exercise aimed at resolving the two states’ boundary disputes which have been pending for a very long period.

The Chief Minister of Meghalaya tweeted, tagging Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, saying both the Chief Minister’s visits to the disputed area of Langpih would be productive.

Assam’s Chief Minister also took to Twitter to express that both CMs would remain steadfast in their commitment to a peaceful resolution of the border dispute.
