Subject : Plights of the Hmar People in Northeast state of Assam and Mizoram.


The Hmars are an indigenous tribal people I Northeast India. The Hmars are dispersed and settle in states of Mizoram, Manipur, Assam, Meghalaya and Tripura. The Hmar tribe being enlisted in the Tribal list per Ministry of Home Affairs Order No. 316(A), 1956, thus had been officially recognized as a Tribal group by the Indian Constitution, since.

In Mizoram, the failure to implement the provisions of the 1994 Accord, which, inter alia, providesfor Upgradation of the status of the present Sinlung Hills Development Council (SHDC) to that of the Autonomous District Council within the framework of the Sixth Scheduleof the Indian Constitution. It is the sincere desire of the Hmar People’s Convention (Democratic) {HPC(D)} that Hmar People, Central Government of India and Government of Mizoram held a Tripartite – Talk to settle the protracted political problems of the Hmars in Mizoram (as in Assam) as two Suspension of Operation (SoO) and dialogue failed to bring anythingsubstantive agreements.

The Government of Mizoram and the HPC(D) signed the Supension of Operation (SoO) on November 11, 2010 for a period of six months, Again, another Suspension of Operation (SoO) between the Government of Mizoram and the HPC(D) was signed by representatives of the Mizoram government and the HPC(D) at the State Guest House, Aizawl (Mizoram) for a period of 6 months effective fromJanuary 31, 2013. At both times talks and Suspension of Operation (SoO) collapsed.

In Assam, the Tripartite – Talks to settle the Hmar issue in Assam is painstakingly slow. The new Union Government and the Home Ministry must immediately continue the talk and bring it to its logical conclusion for the development and security of the entire stakeholders, bycreating an Autonomous District Council for the Hmars within the State of Assam,comprising of satellite and core Hmar villages of Barak Valley (Cachar) and North Cachar Hills under the provision of Articles 224 (2) and 275(1) of the Constitution of India.

In the pursuit of security peace and development, the HPC(D) – Assam Region, has initiated a political dialogue involving the Government of India and the Government of Assam after laying down arms by their cadres which was hosted by theGovernment of Assam in the presence of the Union Home Ministerin Guwahati on 24thJanuary, 2012. The first round of talks of the HPC(D) delegates – Government of Assam – The Central Government was held on27thSeptember, 2012. Five (5) rounds of talk had taken place since.

In the context of Manipur, the HPC(D)political concern is collectively shared with the United People’s Front (UPF), currently under Suspension of Operation (SoO) since 22ndAugust 2008 with the Government of India and the Government of Manipur. The UPF demands for anAutonomous Hill administration under the provision of Articles 244(2)of the Constitution of India within the State of Manipur. The HPC(D) sin the SoO documents in Manipur as UPF, the document is collectively shared and signed alongwith the other members : KNF, KRA (U), UKLF, ZDV and ZRA.

Sir, in the recent past Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National leaders on two occasions has committed to sympathetically consider the Hmar legitimate demands; we placed before you today to give your atmost in resolving the plights of the Hmar People. The Home Ministry (Northern Affairs) must also find solution to competeting aspiration ofthe people of Northeast India urgently before the land is consumedby strife.
