Shillong, March 28: The second round of border talks to resolve the remaining six areas of difference is likely to be held in May.
Chief Minister Conrad Sangma told reporters on Tuesday that he had been talking to the Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma at a personal level.
“But officially, we will try to work it out sometime in the later part of April or maybe around in the month of May,” he said.
“We can start the process and discussion because we would like the regional committees to sit down and do our homework, get familiar with all the issues. We expect in the month of May we can start in April also but we just want to do our homework well,” he said.
The three regional committees on border issue reconstituted on March 24, will have to submit their reports within 45 days.
