After the historic resolution of dispute along 6 areas of difference in Meghalaya recently, the focus is now on the inter-state border issue between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.

Both the states are working on a detailed plan to resolve the decades-old inter-state boundary dispute. In what can be termed a historic occasion, Chief Ministers of both the states met in Guwahati today as official talks for resolution of the boundary issue began.

The framework developed for the Assam-Meghalaya border issue’s resolution, will be in someways replicated in the Assam-Arunachal issue to some extent.

A major decision taken at the meeting between Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma  and his Arunachal counterpart Pema Khandu  at Guwahati today was the initiation of the process to form as many as 12 regional committees to resolve the disputes in around as many as 123 villages along the interstate boundaries.

The 12 areas of conflict of areas are spread in the district of West Kameng, Pakke Kessang, Papum Pare, Kamle, East Siang, Lower Dibang Valley, Lohit, Namsai, Changlang, Tirap and Longding on the Arunachal’s side and Udalguri, Sonitpur, Biswanath, Lakhimpur, Dhemaji, Tinsukia, Dibrugarh and Charaideo on the Assam’s part.

The committees will be formed in a period of 10 days and after the formation, a meeting will be conducted with the members under the chairmanship of both the Chief Ministers.

Meanwhile, it was also decided that the solution of the interstate border issue will be based on four key points which are: Historical Perspective, Administrative Convenience, Contiguity, and People’s Will.

Moreover, it was also decided that both the Chief Ministers will meet again before the regional committees of both the states make joint visits to the areas of differences.
