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.

ULFA supremo Paresh Baruah draws criticism from a number of parties, organizations and individuals for threatening to the Tinsukia protestors of dire consequences.

“Paresh Baruah is not our ruler. Why does not he come out of the jungle?,” Ashish Kumar told Assam Times who hit the streets in Makum on Wednesday.

Talking to Assam Times Deepika Das, a college student said every citizen of the country has the right to live anywhere in the country.

“Those who are threatening the Hindi-speaking people themselves are hiding on the soil of Bangladesh, Myanmar, Bhutan. Do they have any courage to face the people?”

ULFA supremo Paresh Baruah on Thursday asked the Hindi-speaking protestors in Tinsukia to tender apology for accusing the outfit of killing the local trader and his daughter in Bijulibon.

He further threatened to kill the Hindi-speaking people if they refuse to tender apology.
