SHILLONG, April 06: The Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the Opposition in Assam has also demanded a re-examination of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed, but he said that he has given his response on this matter in the Assam Legislative Assembly by stating that all the sites are a part of India, and like siblings,an agreement was signed with regards to the 6 sites of dispute with Meghalaya and the matter should not be raised anymore.
He said that complete satisfaction cannot be guaranteed in agreements, while stating that there will always be people who will be unhappy but the country is happy. The Chief Minister of Assam refused to comment on the criticisms of the Opposition in Meghalaya because it is the responsibility of the Chief Minister of Meghalaya to either accept praises or refute criticisms, and with regard to Assam, he said that the Government has already given its response in the Assembly.
On the other hand, Sarma said that in June or July of this year, the process to resolve the dispute of 6 sites will be undertaken, and from these about 3-4 are sites with extreme complications and the direction it will take is difficult to say now.
He said that the second phase is very complicated because under this phase includes Langpih, Block I, Block II and added that both the State Governments and the public are talking about ways to arrive at resolutions and not the disputes.
