Guwahati: Assam’s militant organization Dimasa National Liberation Army (DNLA) on Friday extended the unilateral ceasefire for another six months.
The group’s chairman has written a letter to Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma explaining the intention to extend the Ceasefire Agreement for a further six months.
On March 31, 2023, the six-month term will come to end.
The chairman stated in the letter that they decided to extend the ceasefire in order to establish peace, negotiations, and developments.
Earlier, in response to CM’s plea for peace in the Dima Hasao and Karbi Anglong districts, the DNLA unilaterally declared a six-month ceasefire as a show of goodwill.
The militant group was established in April 2019 to seek the Dimasa people’s sovereignty through an armed movement.
