The DNLA signed the MoU to lay down their arms and abide by the Constitution in the presence of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla, and other senior officers of MHA and the Assam Government.


As per the memorandum of understanding (MoU), 179 DNLA cadres will surrender their arms and ammunition, while both the central and state governments will provide Rs 500 crore each for the development of the Dimasa tribal areas.


Union Home Minister Amit Shah stated, “With today’s agreement being signed, all tribal militant groups have laid down their arms and have joined mainstream and become a part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s development journey. This is a step towards the progressive Northeast that the prime minister had visualized and promised. With the signing of this treaty, all kinds of violence and terrorism from Dima Hasao district have ended.”
