MPCC wants resumption of peace talks with HPC (D)

Aizawl, June 12: Mizoram Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) wants the State government to take massive effort for resumption of peace talks with the Manipur based Hmar People’s Convention (Democrats).

The MPCC office bearers’ meeting chaired by Chief Minister and state PCC chief last Friday passed a resolution asking the State government to take massive effort at establishing peace with HPC (D) in the interest of the people of Hmar and reach amicable solution by this year, the 30th anniversary of the signing of the historic Mizo Accord.

The meeting also decided that the Home Minister and Excise and Narcotics Minister should constitute Review & Evaluation Committee on the impact of the Mizoram Liquor Prohibition and Control Act, 2014 which is in force in the state for a year. It said that since Mizoram has enforced Mizoram Liquor Prohibition & Control Act, 2015 for one year, the Review & Evaluation Committee should review and evaluate the impact of MLPC Act on Mizo society and make recommendations without any prejudice.

The MLPC Act was implemented since January last year and wine shops opened from mid- March in 2015 after the state reeled under stringent prohibition law for 18 years.
