CM Pema Khandu address boundary disputes with Assam

Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu met with Assam Chief Secretary Kumar Sanjay Krishna and DGP Bhaskarjyoti Mahanta to address the boundary disputes between both the States. 

Pema Khandu informed that the government of Arunachal is committed to maintaining peace and tranquillity along the boundaries with Assam. The officials consulted on forming structured district-wise committees with deputy commissioners, superintendents of police, and district forest officers of the bordering districts of the states at the district level to address disputes in bordering areas.

As a measure to address boundary disputes like encroachments, firewood and sand/gravel collection, disputes relating to PMGSY road, drug trafficking/smuggling, extremist movement, etc, it was decided that both the states would maintain peace and abide the status quo. It was also decided that regular meetings would be held between the two sides, and that if any dispute arises in either of the states, the opposite party should be taken into confidence to resolve the issue in a peaceful manner.
