SHILLONG, MAY 2: Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Tuesday said that the two chief ministers will soon decide on the date for holding the first round of border talks.
Speaking to reporters, Sangma said, “I had a couple of telephonic conversations with my counterpart from Assam. We are working out the dates and hopefully we should be able to initiate the first talk within the month of May itself. However, it is a process and we cannot expect everything to happen in one day but at least in the initial part we will try our best.”
“The good part is that since we are in direct talking terms we are talking to each other directly so we will be able to finalise the dates very soon. We have given two-three options to each other. Once we fix the exact dates I will definitely inform all of you,” he added
