Form boundary commission: Sangma to Rajnath

By Correspondent

SHILLONG, March 22 - As �bilateral efforts have failed�, the Meghalaya government has urged Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to constitute a Boundary Commission to solve the festering boundary problem with Assam.

Chief Minister Mukul Sangma informed in a memorandum to the Union Home Minister that as bilateral efforts to solve the inter-State boundary problem with Assam has failed, a Boundary Commission could provide solutions.

The Meghalaya Chief Minister also apprised Singh about a unanimous resolution passed in the Meghalaya Legislative Assembly urging the Centre to constitute a Boundary Commission to define the Assam-Meghalaya inter-State boundary.

Meghalaya and Assam share 12 areas of dispute, since Meghalaya attained Statehood in 1972. These areas are claimed and counter-claimed by both the neighbouring States. Both sides are having talks at the Chief Secretary level on the issue for sometimes now, but without much headway.

�The Union Government may consider constituting a Boundary Commission seriously considering the sensitivities involved,� Sangma stated.
