New mechanism to end border row

Assam and Meghalaya are in a process to end the border row in consultation with all political parties. The formal proposal to Dispur is expected to come from Shillong after the Mukul Sangma government decided to set up a panel of all political parties to engage in the path breaking consultation with their Assam counterparts.

The all party meeting in Shillong on Wednesday unanimously finalized the move with the hope that it would go a long way to resolve the decade old problem.

A senior political leader who attended the meeting told Assam Times in Shillong that the entity will have representatives from all political parties and independent legislators.

All political parties would send the names of their representatives to be inducted in the entity which is expected to be functional during the next couple of days.
