Guwahati/IBNS: The Chief Minister level talks on border issues between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh held at Namsai on Friday yielded in the signing of the Namsai Declaration to minimize the border dispute between the two states in respect of 123 villages which are placed before the Local Commission.

It may be noted that the Chief Minister level meeting between the Chief Minister of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh held on Jan 24, 2022, and again on April 20, 2022, decided that all border issues between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh will be confined to those raised before the Local Commission in 2007.

Both the States constituted 12 Regional Committees each covering the 12 districts of Arunachal Pradesh and the counterpart districts of Assam for joint verification of 123 villages and thereafter make recommendations to respective State governments keeping in view the historical perspective, administrative convenience, contiguity and people’s will to delineate the interstate boundary between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.

Friday’s meeting between the Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma, and his counterpart Pema Khandu agreed in principle with regard to 37 villages.

28 villages which are within the constitutional boundary of Arunachal Pradesh shall remain with Arunachal Pradesh.

Three villages on which claims were withdrawn by Arunachal Pradesh will remain with Assam and the location of six villages which could not be located on the Assam side and if all, these villages exist on the Arunachal Pradesh side will continue with Arunachal Pradesh.

 Senior officers from both states were also present at the meeting. Both the Chief Ministers thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah for their inspiration and guidance in resolving the long pending border disputes between the two states.
