ULFA gets new peace interlocutor

NEW DELHI: AB Mathur will broker peace between Centre and the United Liberation Front of Asom.

The home ministry has already appointed the former RAW special secretary to resume the peace initiatives with the rebel group who have been fighting for an independent Assam for more than three decades.

Mathur is understood to have been in touch with the top ULFA leadership who have come overground to initiate the peace process during the UPA regime.

A couple of months back Dineswar Sarma was brokering peace between government and ULFA. But Sarma recently was appointed as peace interlocutor with the J&K separatists.
