Kohima, Aug 27: The Local Commission, which was set up by the Supreme Court to look into the boundary disputes between Nagaland and Assam, is scheduled to meet in New Delhi on September 2 and 3 to extend recommendations on the issue.
Nagaland Commissioner H K Khulu, who will lead the state's delegation, today said he would provide suggestions to be referred to the Supreme Court which in turn would be decided only in Parliament.
He said the constitutional boundary was at no point of time approved by the Centre and that the issue between Nagaland and Assam was nothing new. ''One has to go by ground realities and it is a give and take process,'' he said, adding that the governments would be happy as long as people were satisfied with the decision.
Mr Khulu said that 39 tea gardens were in the disputed area and the state government haf often faced objections from the Assam side even during official visit and for inauguration purposes well within the state boundary.
