Mizos want peace talks with Hmars

Aizawl, 21 April (PTI): The Young Mizo Association (YMA) has appealed to Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla to initiate peace talks with the Hmar People’s Convention (Democratic) to bring long-lasting peace in the north-eastern part of the State adjoining Manipur.

A statement by the YMA on Wednesday said the YMA central committee leaders met Lal Thanhawla on Tuesday and reiterated their appeal to hold parleys with the HPC(D).

The Hmar outfit operating from Manipur has been demanding a separate autonomous district council in the north-eastern part of the State under the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution and had been indulging in violence since 1997.

The YMA leaders also appealed to the Chief Minister to take steps to legislate stringent local drug control law for tackling the drug menace in the State. - PTI
