M’laya stresses political consensus on border row

Meghalaya on Tuesday reiterated political consensus to settle the simmering interstater border row with Assam.
Chief Minister Mukul Sangma said that the need was build a consensus among all political parties to solve the inter-state border dispute with Assam. He urged the agitating elected representatives and the individuals to re-strategise their approach as they put pressure on the government to solve the dispute. An MLA of the coalition partner in the Congress-led government Ardent Basaiawmoit and four other members to the Autonomous District Council, have called for a statewide sit-in protest against the government for its 'failure' to end the crisis at the border.
