Newly floated People’s Conference Party (PCP) on Friday asked the Mizoram government to urge the Centre to arrange tripartite talks in order to settle the decades-old border dispute between Mizoram and Assam.
A statement issued by the PCP said an extended officer-bearers meeting of the party was held at Aizawl on Friday to discuss the future plan and programmes of the party.
The meeting passed two important resolutions.
As per the resolutions, the state government should make efforts to request the BJP-led NDA government, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to hold tripartite talks among the Centre, Mizoram and Assam governments so that the long-standing border dispute with Assam is resolved at the earlier, it said.
The party also asked the state government to take steps to ensure that the decision to resettle the displaced Bru people in Tripura’s Zampui areas traditionally inhabited by the Mizos is withdrawn at the earliest, the statement added.
People’s Conference Party was floated on October 6 with the merger of over a 4 decades old Mizoram People’s Conference (MPC) and an anti-corruption watchdog turned People’s Representation for Identity and Status of Mizoram (PRISM).
The party is headed by Lalhmangaiha Sailo, who is the son of former Mizoram chief minister and founder of MPC T. Sailo.
