Opp stages walk out over Koinadhara


The Opposition in the Assam Assembly on Tuesday walked out of the House alleging government’s failure to counter the Meghalaya government’s formal claim over Koinadhara. They alleged that despite repeated questions, the government has not come up with convincing reply.


Asom Gana Parishad MLA Padma Hazarika raised the issue of Meghalaya government's claim on 12 disputed places, including the Chief Minister's residence in Koinadhara Hill which was earlier the Assam State Guest House and urged the government to make its stand clear on the matter. BJP MLA Prashanta Phukan also raised the issue saying the matter was serious as Meghalaya's Revenue Minister had made the statement in their assembly on Monday.
