Assam-Mizoram border disputes: Both CMs likely to meet Union home minister to discuss border issue in detail
Guwahati: The chief ministers of Assam and Mizoram will meet Union home minister Amit Shah on Friday to discuss in detail about the pending Assam-Mizoram border issue.
Both state’s Chief Minister met at the Assam House in New Delhi on Thursday evening.
According to sources, the meeting lasted for about 90 minutes.
Both CM has expressed happiness on social media. Taking to Twitter, Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “Happy to share that HCM Mizoram Sri @ZoramthangaCM accepted my dinner invite at Assam House, Delhi. We had a nice dinner and lively evening. It’s always so heartening to have his gracious company. My colleague Sri @ATULBORA2 joined us.”
Mizoram CM Zoramthanga put out a tweet and thanked Sarma for warm hospitality.
“Thank you for your warm hospitable reception Shri @himantabiswa ji and Shri @ATULBORA2 ji. Cordial discussions on various developmental topic for the welfare of Northeast India was discussed. Looking forward to many more progressive meeting”, Zoramthanga tweeted.
“We are very good friends and we have been able to keep the friendship going on for a long time. Today was one such occasion when we casually sat down and had a chat,” the Mizoram chief Minister said.
The discussion on Thursday was the first physical contact between the two leaders since the horrific border clashes that occurred at the end of July, during which six Assam cops were killed in gunfire.
It also comes at a key time, as the Union home minister has instructed the north-eastern states to resolve the border problem by August 15, 2022.
