State Govt to take a call on HNLC’s offer after centre’s directive

Shillong, Dec 3: The state government will take a call on Hynñiewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC)’s offer for peace only if the centre issues instructions.
“If they (HNLC) have approach the Government of India, then the Government of India will communicate to the state. If such thing is there, a tripartite agreement may also be there,” Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong told reporters on Tuesday.
However he said that the state government is yet to receive any official communication from the centre. “Based on that (communication), we will discuss and decide accordingly on what is the best thing to do,” he added.
Days after the centre declared HNLC as an unlawful organisation, the rebel group on Sunday expressed it wish to sit for unconditional talks.
The ministry of home affairs on November 18 issued a notification declaring HNLC as an unlawful organisation as it was involved in various violent activities including extortion and abduction. The MHA said HNLC’s activities were detrimental to the safety and sovereignty of the nation.
