Supreme Court to hear M’laya-Assam boundary row on April 26

Shillong, Mar 14: The Supreme Court on Thursday admitted the public interest litigation on the inter-state border dispute between Meghalaya and Assam.

“The Supreme Court has admitted the PIL and the case will be taken up on April 26,” Advocate FL Nonglait said on Thursday.

According to Fenela on that particular day, the state governments of Meghalaya and Assam and the government of India will file affidavit on that day.

It may be recalled on January 23 this year, the PIL was filed by social activist THS Bonney.

The PIL was filed based on official documents provided by KHNAM legislator from North Shillong Adelbert Nongrum.

Around 12 sensitive areas of disputes were highlighted for immediate relief contravening public peace and security.

The decades-old border dispute remains a contentious issue between Assam and Meghalaya with successive governments failing to resolve it.

The 12 areas of difference between the two states are Tarabari, Gizang, Hahim, Langpih, Borduar, Boklapara, Nongwah-Mawtamur, Khanapara-Pillangkata, Desh Doomreah, Block I and II, Khaduli-Psiar and Ratacherra, and cover an area of 2,729.14 square km.
