Centre concerned over ceasefire violation by insurgent groups
New Delhi: The government on Tuesday expressed
concern over the violation of ceasefire agreement by insurgent
groups active in parts of Arunachal Pradesh and said the
matter has been taken up with the neighbouring countries to
ensure that they do not give shelter to these groups.
"I concede that despite ceasefire arrangement with
insurgent groups, violations do happen and we have taken a
grave notice of this," Home Minister P Chidambaram said during
the Question Hour.
The major insurgent groups active in Arunachal Pradesh
are National Socialist Council of Nagaland (I/M) and National
Socialist Council of Nagaland (K) especially in the Tirap and
The Union Home Secretary held discussions with the state
government in March this year to review the situation, the
minister said adding that the government has strengthened
security on India-Myanmar border.
On whether the insurgent groups were operating with
support of neighbouring countries, he said "successive
governments have taken up this matter with the neighbouring
countries and continue to take up with limited success."
There is a new government in the neighbouring country of
Bangladesh and "our assessment is that the new government is
more responsive than the previous one," he said.
