Central Government to review peace pact with two militant groups of Meghalaya, says Home Ministry senior official

The joint secretary, Union Home Ministry, in charge of the North East, Satyendra Garg said on April 20 that the peace pact that was signed by the State and the Central governments with two disbanded rebel groups, Achik National Volunteer Council (ANVC) and Breakaway faction of Achik National Volunteer Council (ANVC-B), will be reviewed in May or June this year (2017), reports The Shillong Times. The peace agreement was signed by the Central Government of India, the State Government, ANVC and ANVC-B in Delhi on September 24, 2014.

Further, replying to the questions of the reporters, on April 20, Satyendra Garg said that the Central Government of India will not initiate peace talks with any militant outfit at the moment in Meghalaya, added The Shillong Time. He said that for the Centre to come to the talks table, the groups have to first abjure violence and abide by the Constitution. The Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA), and the Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC), had earlier expressed their willingness to come forward for peace talks with the Government.

Meanwhile, the ‘former chairman’ Bernard Rimpu N Marak of ANVC-B, in a statement, blamed the State Government for the failure of the ‘Agreed Text of Settlement’ signed in 2014 and threatened that if it is not implemented by September 24, the agreement will be “burned publicly”, reports The Shillong Times on April 21.
