Rijiju meets Gogoi, Zeliang

Union minister of state for home Kiren Rijiju meets chief minister Tarun Gogoi and his Nagaland counterpart TR Zeliang in Dispur on Thursday.

Rijiju reviewed the law and order situation along the inter state border with Gogoi before talking to TR Zeliang who apprised him of the situation prevailing in Nagaland. A joint statement is expected anytime from now.

Rijiju prepared his Guwahati schedule suddenly on Wednesday night hours after chief minister Tarun Gogoi criticized him for not visiting the state.

The chief minister duo are likely to come out with a joint statement after the end of the meeting in the afternoon.

On Wednesday, Union home minister Rajnath Singh asked Gogoi and Zeliang to hold talks on the issue and sign an joint statement on Thursday.
