ULFA(I) questions asylum move

 The anti-talk faction of the United Liberation Front of Asom has made it plain and simple that under no circumstances they would allow the authorities to provide asylum to foreigners who had fled religious persecution in Bangladesh.

In its editorial column of the Swadhinata, they equally castigated Chief minister Tarun Gogoi and state BJP president Sarbananda Sonowal with harsh words for trying to retain the Bangladeshi vote banks. 

ULFA (I) said that both Gogoi and Sonowal would be responsible if anybody from Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan or Burma is given asylum.

The statement assumes significance a few couple of days after the Assam government announced that it would move the Centre to frame a policy to grant asylum to persons who fled religious persecution and discrimination and took refuge in India on humanitarian grounds.
