Agartala, Sept 3,2019: Jampui Mizo Convention (MC) agreed to put its September 4th bandh on temporary suspension after the Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb offered bilateral talk on the issue  of the MC's 40 year long demand of Jampui Hill Autonomous Regional Council.  The  CM also agreed to attend to the Convention's demand of immediate repair of the hill road connectivity.
