Centre’s peace negotiater, PC Haldar today initiated political dailogue with the A’chik National Volunteers Council (ANVC) over their demand for creation of Garo territorial council to ensure lasting peace in Meghalaya. “We have started our political discussion on ANVC’s demand and the process of discussions will have to continue,” Mr Haldar told reporters here. However, he said a decision to the extension of the ceasefire with the ANVC will be decided in the Joint Monitoring Group (JMG) meeting scheduled to be held within March 31. The six-year-old tripartite cease-fire agreement between the Centre and Meghalaya government with the ANVC is due to expire on March 31. Emerging out of the meeting, ANVC Spokesman, Torik Jangning Marak said, “We have placed our demand for creation of Garo Territorial Council in line of Bodoland Territorial Council in Assam.” Making a U-turn on its demand for an indefinite ceasefire agreement, Marak said the outfit has opted for periodic ceasefire agreement for a period of three months rather than an indefinite ceasefire agreement. “By entering into a periodic ceasefire agreement, we (ANVC) would be able to have more discussions on our various demands” he said.
