Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and state health and finance minister Himanta Biswa Sarma is all set to meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah to deliberate on the ULFA-I peace talks issue.
According to highly placed sources, both Chief Minister Sonowal and Himanta Biswa Sarma raised the issue with Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the latter’s visit to Kokrajhar yesterday.
