Assam & Nagaland CM discuss various issues of mutual interest
Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and his Nagaland counterpart Neiphiu Rio held a closed-door meeting on Sunday at Jorhat and discussed several issues affecting the two states.
Though officials were tight-lipped about the issues discussed in the meeting, sources said the duo spoke only on some “personal and political issues”.
Sarma, who tweeted to inform about the meeting at Circuit House where the press was not allowed, also did not share details of the discussion that lasted for about 15 minutes only. It was followed by breakfast.
“Glad to have met HCM Nagaland Sri @Neiphiu_Rio at Jorhat today, along with MP Sri @KamakhyaTasa. Discussed several issues of mutual interest in order to strengthen the age-old ties & bonhomie b/w (between) two states.

“We strive towards building an ever united & stronger #NorthEast,” Sarma tweeted. An official statement from the Assam chief minister’s public relations cell gave details of his other programmes in Jorhat district, but was silent about the particulars of the meeting between Sarma and Rio.
“Both the chief ministers discussed several issues of mutual interest,” it said.
“They discussed something personal, and some political issues. The inter-state border dispute between Assam and Nagaland was not discussed in it. No official issue was deliberated upon in the brief meeting,” a senior official said.
