Ray of Hope: Centre-UPDS negotiation today in Delhi

The United Peoples’ Democratic Solidarity (UPDS) is all se to hold negotiation with the Centre on in Delhi Thursday. According to information, the historic talk is set to begin at 5 in the afternoon at the North Block. The rebel outfit based in Karbi Anglong and North Cachar hills district leaders are hopeful of an amicable solution. As the rebels so the people in general. The civil society in Karbi Anglong district on Wednesday took out a peace procession saying it will make an end to all the troubles that have been ravaging both the hills districts. Notably, the outfit in its struggle for an independent state in the hills district came for ceasefire years back which was extended later. The extension term expired in February forcing a section of the cadres to go underground. But of late, they have expressed their desire to go for a direct talk with the Centre and accordingly with a few civil society leaders they conveyed their move to the Chief Minister. Top ranked Union home ministry officials are scheduled to attend the crucial meeting. We are tracing the development on Thursday and will update it constantly.
