NEW DELHI, Sept 8 � Even as the controversy over the land transfer deal with Bangladesh raged on, External�Affairs Minister SM Krishna thanked the State governments on Thursday, and expressed his hope that problems arising out of illegal border crossings and related difficulties would now be better addressed by both sides.

�Our efforts to resolve the border issues with Bangladesh reflect our desire to make our borders with the neighbours, borders of peace, stability and amity,� he said in a suo motto statement in the Parliament on the Prime Minister�s Bangladesh visit.

Effective management of India�s borders is the first essential step for creating a defined and peaceful boundary that would provide a stable and tranquil environment for cross-border cooperation with Bangladesh, Krishna said.

The statement provoked State BJP MPs Bijoya Chakravarty, Rajen Gohain and Ramen Deka to loudly protest the land transfer deal, alleging that Assam�s land has been given away to Bangladesh by the Prime Minister.
