Meghalaya: There is no MDA partner against the border agreement with Assam, says CM Konrad Sangma.
Meghalaya Chief Minister Konrad Sangma has said that the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) partners in the state are against revising the border agreement, which was recently signed with Assam.
No one said they wanted to review the MoU. Meghalaya Chief Minister Konrad Sangma said there were concerns of some coalition partners which were clarified.
The signing of the March 29 border agreement between Meghalaya and Assam has sparked outrage among various groups in Meghalaya.
The border agreement signed between Meghalaya Chief Minister Konrad Sangma and his Assam counterpart Himanta Biswa Sarma resolves border disputes in at least six of the 12 disputed areas between the two neighboring states.
Earlier, the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) had announced that it would go to court challenging the border agreement reached between the state governments of Assam and Meghalaya.
PN Syiem , a member of the KHADC Boundary Committee, said the council would approach the court as the Meghalaya government had made it clear that the border agreement with Assam would not be reviewed.
In addition, KHADC has constituted a liaison committee, which will prepare a report on the border agreement reached between the state governments of Assam and Meghalaya before going to court.
