Union Home Minister Amit Shah lauded this milestone, affirming the government’s dedicated efforts toward establishing lasting peace in Northeast India. He highlighted the agreement’s role in fulfilling Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of holistic development and better prospects for the region’s youth.

The agreement signifies a pivotal moment poised to usher in a new era of peace, specifically benefiting Manipur. Under PM Modi’s vision and Amit Shah’s guidance, multiple agreements have been established since 2014, aiming to curtail militancy and drive development in the Northeast.

This agreement holds immense significance as it represents the first instance of a valley-based Manipuri armed group rejoining the mainstream, renouncing violence, and committing to uphold India’s Constitution and laws. Beyond ending hostilities, it presents an opportunity to address longstanding community concerns.
