ULFA, Maoist back anti dam protestors: Gogoi


Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Wednesday alleged presence of ULFA and Maoist elements in the simmering anti big dam agitation in Lakhimpur and Dhemaji.


Talking to reporters in the sidelights of a function in Guwahati, Gogoi said that such a big demonstration in the form of road blockade was not possible for KMSS to organize without the active help and support from Maoists and ULFA.


He said that the government keeps its door open to discuss anything with protestors. But in the same breath he said he wont allow anybody to take law on their own hands. “My position is clear. If one takes law on one’s hand we not remain silent.”
