Shillong: The Synjuk ki Nongsynshar Shnong ka Bri U Hynniewtrep (SNSBH), a conglomeration of all traditional heads of Khasi and Jaintia hills, on Wednesday met Meghalaya chief minister Conrad K Sangma demanding for a sustainable solution to the interstate boundary issue with Assam at Langpih.

SNSBH general secretary RL Blah said that representatives had urged the CM to find out a lasting solution and sit and discuss with chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal of neighbouring Assam.

Blah said, "We are very much disturbed and worried with regards to Langpih issue, which have cropped up time and again. We met the chief minister and apprised him and questioned the government as this issue has been going on from 1972 since inception that we got statehood as on date. So we don’t want to see that this issue keeps continuing government after government. So, we wanted that this problem should be resolved at the earliest."

Blah informed that the CM has given an assurance that discussions will happen after the budget session. The chief minister of both the states will sit together and try to find a lasting solution.
