In Mizoram, the 34th anniversary of Mizo peace accord is being celebrated today through simple functions maintaining social distancing and guidelines of lockdown of Covid-19.

On the occasion, Chief Minister Zoramthanga said that the Mizo peace accord has been the most successful accord ever signed in the country and the world as well. He said Mizoram has become the most peaceful state and a beacon of hope for the world and proved peace can be attained and sustained.

The state government has declared public holiday for government offices and educational institutions to mark the day.

According to observers, the Mizoram insurgency began in the aftermath of the devastating famine of 1959. The then Mizo district council under the Assam government requested the Government to alleviate the effects of that famine. The Mizo National Famine Front was floated in 1961 to take an active role in demanding relief and mass movement. With hardly any progress coming out in tackling famine and also in relief works in successive years, the Front had taken the path of insurgency in 1966 that continued till mid of 1986 and ended with the signing of peace accord with the union government.

Officials said that the Mizo peace accord ushered in an era of peace after 20 years of insurgency in the state. The peace accord was signed between the Union government and the erstwhile underground Mizo National Front (MNF) on the 30th June in 1986. The signatories were MNF leader Laldenga, R. D. Pradhan, Union Home Secretary, and Lalkhama, Mizoram Chief Secretary.
