Diphu: On Friday, the Assam government engaged in peace talks with the Dimasa National Liberation Army (DNLA) in the hope of peace and a permanent solution in the hills districts of Assam.

The peace process with the DNLA was led by Assam Education Minister Ranoj Pegu in the presence of Special DGP, Shri G.P. Singh, and ADGP, Shri Hiren Nath, of the Assam police.

The news was shared by Ranoj Pegu on his official Twitter handle, and wrote, "In response to HCM Dr. @himantabiswa's call, Dimasa National Liberation Army (DNLA) has come out to join the peace process. I on behalf of the Govt. of Assam welcomed the group led by Shri Edika Diphusa, Chairman, DNLA at Daojingphai village of Karbi Anglong."

Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma, who was absent in the event, acknowledged the developments that had taken place and tweeted, "Peace is not illusive when we walk the extra mile. Dimasa National Liberation Army (DNLA), an armed outfit of Assam's hill districts, came out from jungle today .We welcome them to a dialogue and hope for permanent solution and peace ."

Earlier this month, the DNLA had declared a "Unilateral Ceasefire" hoping for peace talks with the Assam government.

In April 2019, the DNLA was formed to fight for a sovereign 'Dimasa nation'. The members of the DNLA outfit have allegedly been trained by the Isak-Muivah faction of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland, which has been engaged in talks with the Central government for the past many years.
