The meeting is also slated to cover the issue of holding peace talks with the United Liberation Front of Asom-Independent (ULFA-I).

Besides this, several key issues will be discussed at the meeting today.

COVID situation of Assam may also find space in the meet considering the rise of Omicron variant cases in the country.
