NEW DELHI, Aug 27 - Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today conveyed the State�s opposition to redrawing of the State�s boundary.
The Chief Minister, who met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh at his North Block Office and raised the Centre�s accord with the NSCN(I-M), said the Centre should have discussed the pertinent matters relating to the Naga peace accord with the Chief Ministers of neighbouring States.
During his discussions, the Chief Minister told Singh that though the Government of Assam has welcomed the Naga peace accord, as it would bring about peace in Nagaland and the Northeast as a whole, it would oppose tooth and nail if the accord infringes upon the constitutional boundary of Assam.
�The Government of Assam has formally conveyed its protests that the accord should not in any way harm Assam�s interest. Extension of the boundary beyond Nagaland frontier would not be tolerated under any circumstances,� he added.
In this context, Singh assured Gogoi that there is no such development taking place and that the Central Government would take the State into confidence on any matters relating to the Naga peace accord.
