Talks: ULFA flays Gogoi

GUWAHATI: United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) charges Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi of dishonouring his own commitments for a successful negotiation.

In its latest mouthpiece Freedom , the militant outfit says the recent statement of Mr Gogoi is not acceptable as he himself has gone back to his promise.

He has failed to free the ULFA cadres from captivity besides his failure to trace the whereabouts of some missing ULFA top cadres during the Operation All Clear, reads the Freedom.

It further has charged that the Centre is maintaining a studied silence on the issue of negotiation. Mr Gogoi only talks of peace in Assam without restoration of its sovereignty.

ULFA maintains in its mouthpiece that the flood will be remaining a problem in Assam as long as “colonial rule” exists. It justifies that New Delhi, till date, has not taken any steps for permanent solution to the problem.

ULFA further charges the political parties with failing to provide help to the marooned people saying the proceedings of the State Assembly could have been stalled to rush to the affected areas.

On the much-touted Centre-NSCN (I-M) talk, ULFA opines in the Freedom that not much progress has been made in it except extending the cease-fire agreement.

They further say it is Government in New Delhi who has encouraged NSCN to demand creation of greater Nagalim with inclusion of areas of Assam, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh.
