Ruling out to revisit the boundary pact in the six of 12 areas of difference with Assam, the Chief Minister said, “Now if we open up the subject of revisiting then the entire exercise done has gone to waste. So therefore we will have to start from scratch again.”

Moreover, he said that Meghalaya has gained in a large way and the majority of the people are very happy with the areas that have been able to resolve.

“If we were to revisit and change those things then we are going against the entire principle based on which we have come to certain conclusions and if we were to do that (revisit) then all the other areas that we have already managed to get on our side those also will open up for discussions,” the Chief Minister said.

Sangma denied that regional parties which are supporting his NPP-led government have demanded to revisit the boundary pact following protests from various quarters.

“As such the regional parties have not made such demands but individuals within the parties have made those statements for revisiting the MoU. None of these parties have given to me in writing or discussed any matter that they don’t agree with the pact,” the Chief Minister said.

Sangma however said that every citizen has the right to dissent and expressed their concerns. “ I don’t see anything wrong in somebody’s dissenting and not agree with what I say or what the government has to say,” he said.
