Aizawl, Apr 10 (PTI): The fourth round of peace talks between the Mizoram government and the Hmar People’s Convention (Democratic) militants is scheduled to be held on April 21, a senior State Home Department official said on Monday.

The official informed PTI that the parleys were expected to revolve around giving more autonomy to the Sinlung Hill Development Council and also on the financial aspects, including proposals for rehabilitation and resettlement of the HPC(D) militants, after they lay down arms in the event of the agreement being signed.

“We are waiting for the concurrence of the State Finance Department on our proposals for the expenses and hope that the concurrence would come before the resumption of the talks,” the official said.

The State team would be led by Home Additional secretary Lalbiakzama while the HPC(D) delegation would be headed by HPC(D) working chief L. T. Hmar.
