Boundary panel visits Arunachal

By The Assam Tribune

ITANAGAR, Nov 13 � The Supreme Court appointed Local Boundary Commission has visited Gumto and Kimin in Papum Pare and Dollungmukh in Lower Subansiri districts of Arunachal for inspection of the boundary with Assam.

The Commission headed by Justice (retd) Tarun Chatterjee yesterday went to the areas to assess the ground reality. The team went around the inter-State boundary at Taraso under Balijan Circle of Papum Pare district.

Besides Commission members Kamal Naidu and SP Goel, the team included Arunachal Home Commissioner CB Kumar, Border Affairs Director RK Sharma, IGP Arvind Deep and other high ranking government officials.

The Assam Government was represented by Secretary (Border Areas) Gyanendra Tripathy, and other senior officers.

As the boundary issue has been agitating the minds of the people of both States despite their age-old cultural relations, the Supreme Court had on September 25, 2006 appointed Justice (retd) SN Vairava to be assisted by two other members with specific direction that the panel shall identify the boundaries between Nagaland, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.

Justice Vairava later opted out and he was replaced by Justice Chatterjee on January 20, 2010.

However, at that time, the apex court made it clear that it was not a boundary commission as postulated in the Constitution but only a local commission.

A meeting was held between the Local Commission and Arunachal Government on August 1, 2007 here during which the State Government had submitted that it would make a proposal once again to the Assam Government for adjustments in the boundary taking into consideration the ground reality.

The Commission after visiting various disputed places for verification of the ground reality is expected to submit its final report to the Supreme Court for thrashing out an amicable and lasting solution to the contentious issue, sources added. � PTI
