The Leader of Opposition in Meghalaya and TMC leader Mukul Sangma cautioned the government to ensure that the culmination of peace talks with the Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC) does not lead to a vacuum-like in the case of Garo Hills where there was a mushrooming of militants after a ceasefire was signed by the ANVC.
