Developments from 1967-1972
MNF was outlawed in 1967 and the demand for Mizoram's statehood increased.
Mizo District Council delegation submitted its demands for statehood to PM Indira Gandhi in July 1971.
The Indian government offered to turn Mizo hills into a Union Territory.
In January 1972, Mizoram became a Union Territory and was allotted two seats in Parliament, one each in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.
Mizo PeaceAccord 1986
Rajiv Gandhi's ascension to power as PM after Indira's death in 1984 thawed the relations between Mizo fighters and Center.
After years of uprising, MNF conceded to work within Indian constitution and renounce violence.
Mizo Peace Accord was signed on 30 June 1986 by Laldenga on behalf of MNF, and Union Home Secretary RD Pradhan on government's behalf and Chief Secretary of Mizoram Lalkhama.
Laldenga becomes CM
As part of the Accord deal, Laldenga became the interim Chief Minister of Mizoram and went on to win the first Mizoram Legislative Assembly election after statehood in 1987. He continued as CM for a year before his government was toppled.
Birth of Mizoram state
Statehood was a prerequisite for the implementation of the Mizo Peace Accord between MNF (Mizo National Front) and the Union government.
After the signing of the peace accord, a constitutional amendment bill to confer statehood on Mizoram was passed in Lok Sabha, in August 1986.
Mizoram consequently, became a full-fledged state of India on 20 Feb 1987.
