Shillong: Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma today said surveys are being carried out for proper demarcation of the boundary of Meghalaya and Assam.
“Surveys are being done and different agencies are being involved. So, we are waiting for those surveys to be done,” Sangma told reporters.
He further informed that the two state governments are also waiting for the call from the Central government to finalize the border agreement for six out of twelve areas of difference.
