    People are always informed that the boundary talks are being held but never about the conclusions drawn and what happened during the talk… I think BBS need to find more and inform people accordingly… Its useless info as it makes no sense. We hear that the talks are being conducted but we never did hear about the conclusions drawn and what were some of the things that were raised and agreed… Its a useless piece, sorry to say that
