Govt lacks political will to end conflict: ULFA

The United Liberation Front of Asom has strongly criticised the government for lack of interest to end the arms conflcit in Assam.

In its latest mouthpiece Swadhinata, the proscribed out said the government has gone back to its words for paving the way for a meaningful dialogue. They said even Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh assured them of discussing the issue of sovereignty.

But both Governor and the Assam Chief Minister have gone one step further saying there will not be an discussion on sovereignty.

They further charged BJP veteran L K Advani with trying to destroy the state's communal harmony with his recent statement saying “the Artisans and labourers from Jharkhand, Bihar, Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa and other States were brought to work in the tea gardens. But today anti-national forces are planning to expel these people brought from other states from Assam.”

They also have opined that people have not come spontaneously to celebrate the Republic Day adding that police and military jawans have forced these people to celebrate it.
