Shillong: Union Home Minister Amit Shah will chair a meeting with CMs of northeast states on July 17, during which he is likely to take up the matter of interstate border disputes among other issues, Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma said on Friday.

The meeting will also be attended by chief secretaries and the director-general of police of these states, he said.

“The Union Home Minister has informed us that he will be chairing a meeting with all chief ministers of NE states at the Convention Hall here, tentatively on July 17,” Sangma told reporters.

He said the Centre has expressed a desire that interstate issues among states should be resolved before the 75th Independence Day on August 15.

“For 50 years, we could not find a solution to the vexed border problems. At present, there is a political understanding among the states in the northeast. We can discuss this matter at a higher level,” Sangma said.

Shah, during his two-day visit to Meghalaya, will also hold a meeting at the North Eastern Space Applications Centre (NESAC) headquarters near here, he said.

The Union minister will inaugurate a few projects in the state, too, the chief minister added.
