ULFA-I opposes oil field auction

The United Liberation Front of Asom (I) has pledged to prevent the move to auction 12 oil fields in Assam.

In a strongly worded statement, the outfit’s publicity secretary Aronodoy Asom called it an anti-national steps and that the nation and its wealth are not at all safe at the hands of Delhi.

He said that the people in power at Dispur should not allow it to happen in the name of royalty.

“If Britain can pull out of the European Union with the help of a referendum why Delhi and Dispur can’t resolve the Indo-Assam conflict?,” said the ULFA(I) leader.
