Solution

The correct option is C Punjab Accord
The Rajiv Gandhi-Longowal Accord, or the Punjab Accord, was a step towards bringing normalcy to the Punjab state. Fresh elections were held and the Shiromani Akali Dal came to power.

Peace did not stay for long though, as Longowal was assassinated by the militants. Violence brokeout and the police took strict actions.

Peace was finally restored by the end of the 1990s.
