Uniting the ‘Shahi’ way!

New Delhi: Ending their over 50-year-old border dispute, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh on Thursday signed an agreement in presence of Union HM Amit Shah here which will bring settlement to 123 villages located along areas the two northeastern states share.

The 2 borders have been in dispute since the latter was made a union territory in 1972.

Shah said the Modi govt has withdrawn the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act from most of places in Assam, 15 police stations in 6 districts in Manipur, all but 3 dists in Arunachal, 7 districts in Nagaland, and entire Tripura and Meghalaya. Khandu said the agreement has been possible due to the initiative and political will of PM and HM and active cooperation of the Assam government led by Sarma.
