"The one-man committee headed by Justice Tarun Chatterjee is looking after the issue and he is scheduled to convene a meeting of the chief ministers of both the states in June," he told a press conference here.

The Centre had last year sanctioned Rs. 154 crore to Arunachal Pradesh for development of areas along the inter-state boundary.

"This year Rs. 92 crore was sanctioned," he said.
