GUWAHATI: Two regional committees — one from Assam and the other from Meghalaya — visited some villages along the inter-state boundary and interacted with the villagers today.

While Water Resources and IPR (Information and Public Relations) Minister Pijush Hazarika led the Assam committee, Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong led the Meghalaya committee. The two teams visited the fringe villages bordering the Kamrup district in Assam and the Ri-Bhoi district in Meghalaya.

It came to light that most of the villagers cast their votes both in Assam and Meghalaya elections.

The villagers of Jimirigaon expressed their opinion to side with Assam. Most of the villagers of Patgaon also want to be with Assam. On the other hand, most of the Baklapara and Lungsai villagers are willing to side with Meghalaya.

Talking to the media after the visit, Pijush Hazarika said, "We have taken the opinion of villagers. We will report it to our Chief Minister. The Meghalaya team will also report it to their Chief Minister. After that, the two Chief Ministers will take a fruitful decision by taking all parties, organizations and other stakeholders into confidence."

Meghalaya Deputy Chief Minister Tynsong said, "The two Chief Ministers formed the regional committees. By November 30 this year, we will submit the report to our Chief Minister. The Assam committee will also submit the report to their Chief Minister. Both the Chief Ministers will then sit across the table and make the right decisions at a few stretches."

Earlier, the two chief ministers had formed regional committees to make on-the-spot visits and interact with the local populace. The two chief ministers also visited the Langpi area recently.
