Paper No. 6065 Dated 27-Jan-2016
By C. S. Kuppuswamy
“Without a lasting peace with ethnic minority groups, who make up around 40 percent of the population, any future administration will have difficulty ensuring a nationwide buy-in for its reform agenda and providing the political stability needed to manage and develop the country’s resource-rich frontiers, where most ethnic groups are located”. - Murray Hiebert and Phuong Nguyen – Asia Sentinel - 22 August 2014.
