It is with great pride and happiness that I congratulate the Mizoram Government and the Hmar People’s Convention (Democratic) on having signed a peace accord on 02 April, 2018. With the stroke of a pen, we have brought to an end 24 long years of suffering and insurgency. The resolve and dedication shown by all the stakeholders towards this end must be commended.
After the historic Peace Accord of 1986, Mizoram has taken the lead yet again in displaying that peace is attainable even in politically vexed and mired situations. We have continued to showcase that we are one of the most peaceful States, if not the most peaceful, in India. The political will of the Government, the trust shown by the HPC (D), and the role played by the civil society all deserve applause.
With this signing, we now look forward to a more peaceful and prosperous Mizoram. I appeal to all sections of the society to show absolute sincerity in making this a long-lasting solution. I am certain that the Government and the HPC (D) will remain true to all our commitments.
I once again congratulate everyone involved for bringing about this new dawn filled with hope.
