No violation of ceasefire agreement would be tolerated: Rijiju tells North East insurgent groups

Itanagar: Sending out a strong message to the insurgent groups active in the North East, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju on Tuesday said that no violation of ceasefire agreement would be tolerated by the Centre.

"If any group violates ceasefire agreement, action will be taken against them. No group can operate outside the ceasefire operation area," Rijiju said while responding to media questions on suspected NSCN ambush on an army convoy at Tirap district on 2 April last, killing three jawans.

He said, the NSCN factions could not operate in the territory of Arunachal Pradesh which was against the ceasefire agreement.

"The group involved in the Tirap ambush went to Myanmar and the MHA is chalking out strategies to counter such incidents," he said.

"If they continue to violate ceasefire agreement, there will be repercussion from our side too," he said adding, action would be taken against those involved in the Tirap ambush.

Responding to a question on peace talk with the insurgent outfits of the region, Rijiju emphatically said that no talks were possible until the groups gave up violence and surrender.

"They will have to surrender with arms and come to the negotiation table. We will provide suitable rehabilitation package for them and initiate dialogues," he said.

He said there would be no talks any more in the political level for which the government had appointed interlocutors to initiate talks with the groups of the region.

"We have already directed the interlocutors to expedite the talk process for a permanent solution to bring peace into the region," he added.
