IV.Participation in the Negotiation for Peace & Communal Harmony:

Naga-Kuki ethnic clashes: Once there was misunderstanding between the brethren Nagas and Kukis which flared up into violence, armed clashes, burning of houses both sides. Thousands lost their lives and several thousands fled their homes which were burnt down. In this connection, Rev. H. Chungthang Thiek, Secretary, EFI (N.E.) stepped in and organized "CONFERENCE ON PEACE AND RECONCILIATION" at the MBC Church, Imphal during 9— 11th February, 1996. As a neutral and non-Naga and non-Kuki Christian Minister, I was invited to be the Speaker for Sunday morning on 11' February 1996. On that same Sunday evening I also hosted "AGAPE FEAST" for the participants in the peace process. From this day onwards, peace and tranquility was prevailed and till date no such major undesirable incident has further occurs between the two groups. It was a Turning point in restoring permanent peace and harmony

Zomi-Kuki(ZRA-KNF) ethnic clashes:  In 1997, serious ethnic clash broke out between the Paites- ZRA(Zomi Revolutionary Army) and the Kukis -KNF (Kuki National Front). Thousands fled from their homes. Thousand houses were burnt down. Several lives were lost. I took vigorous steps to subside the violence and find the path for peaceful conclusion. I invited all the leaders of the different communities in Churachandpur. We made efforts together urgently and formed a PEACE MISSION which was known as "DR. CHALTON'S PEACE MISSION". Through the endeavor of the said peace mission, the warring groups- the ZRA and the KNF leaders came to terms and signed CEASE-FIRE AGREEMENT on 11-8-1997. Appreciation Letters to Dr. Chalton were received from His Excellency, the Governor of Manipur Shri. O.N.Shrivastava and also from numbers of various political and Church leaders.

Hmar-Dimasa ethnic clashes : In the year 2003, ethnic clash flared up between the Hmars and the Dimasas in N.C. Hills, Assam. Many innocent lives lost, houses burnt down, thousands fled their homes and were rendered homeless. To pave way for peace and harmony, I, as a Minister and Leader of the Hmars, met and discussed several times with the Deputy Prime Minister of India, In-charge of Home Shri L. K. Advani, Union Minister of State for Home Shri I. D. Swami, Assam Chief Minister Shri Tarun Gogoi, Dimasa leader Shri G.C. Langthasa, Minister (Assam). Shri I.D Swami also personally came and visited the displaced camps at Cachar. Ultimately through the involvement of the Church leaders and the steps taken together, peace was restored between the two ethnic groups.

Fighting against HIV/AIDS: MANIPUR STATE AIDS POLICY, which was the first of its kind in the country, was formed and adopted by the Government of Manipur in October 1996 during my tenure as Health Minister. I introduced, propagated and delivered speech about AIDS Policy in the National Conferences on AIDS held in Delhi and also abroad like Melbourne (Australia), Bangkok and Chiangmai in Thailand and Barcelona(Spain) on International Conference.
