On taking up the border issue during his visit to New Delhi on February 15, CM Conrad Sangma told reporters that the two states have already submitted a joint report and joint statement to the ministry of home affairs (MHA).

He further informed that the MHA has asked the Survey of India and other departments to give a report to them.

“I am presuming that the MHA is waiting for those reports to come in and I am sure that in a very short time, very few days, the MHA will call us (very soon),” Sangma said.

The Meghalaya chief minister also said that the Union home minister had called both the chief ministers last week but due to his busy schedules the proposed meeting had to be postponed.
