Deomali, May 21: Speaking in Tirap district of Arunachal Pradesh on Saturday, Union Minister of Home Affairs Amit Shah said that the inter-state boundary dispute between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh will be resolved by next year.

“60 percent of border-related issues have been resolved between Arunachal Pradesh and Assam. The aim is to develop all eight states [in the north-east],” he said, addressing the golden jubilee celebration of Ramkrishna Mission Ashram in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tirap.

He added, “During 2014-2022, PM Modi has ended differences between north-east and Delhi. No one cares about the languages of the northeast but PM Modi has given importance to them.”

Amit Shah is on a two-day visit to Arunachal Pradesh this weekend. During his visit, he was to lay the foundation of a 51-feet-statue of sage Parshuram at Wakro in Lohit district, besides launching around 40 projects.
