On Sunday, a memorandum was submitted to Assam's chief minister, Sarbananda Sonowal, by Rupert Momin, an MLA of the National People's Party (NPP), through his Meghalaya counterpart, Conrad Sangma, seeking cooperation between states on road issues faced by people facing the border between the two countries.
The MLA raised the issue of roads connecting the two states in Meghalaya between Assam State and North Garo Hills (NGH), which he said had been ignored for decades.
Commenting on the positive change brought about by Assam CM, the MLA said the advantages of Assam's change also trickle down to neighboring Meghalaya.
“As the scope of tourism in Meghalaya has gone up, there are thousands of vehicles from Assam which help ferry these tourists to Meghalaya which is beneficial to both states. Not only tourism but other aspects of normal life too shares common threads,” said the MLA through the memo.
The MLA further pointed to various agricultural and horticultural products that share common threads between the two states – with Assam providing the market for Meghalaya produce.
“There is huge amount of intermingling between residents of both states. However for all good things proper road connectivity is essential. I submit a few proposals keeping in view the necessity for both states for vital infrastructure like roads, bridges among others,” added the MLA.
