GUWAHATI, Feb 24 � Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today alleged that opposition parties like Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and BJP had links with the Paresh Barua faction of the ULFA and would take their help in coming assembly polls in the state, reports PTI.
�ULFA, led by Paresh Barua, has issued threats to Congress ministers and legislators and is silent on AGP and BJP who have stated that talks without Barua will not be fruitful,� Gogoi told reporters on the sidelines of the launching of Assam State Wide Area Network and Assam Online portal here.
This made it clear that there was a �definite link� between the opposition parties and a section of the ULFA whichwould help the opposition parties during the assembly elections, the chief minister alleged.
Gogoi charged he is �absolutely sure that former Chief Minister (and AGP leader) Prafulla Kumar Mahanta and ULFA also have links�.
�The opposition parties also do not accuse either ULFA or NDFB militants of being responsible for triggering bomb blasts that had rocked the state over the years when everybody is aware of their involvement,� he added.
Gogoi said there were intelligence inputs that Maoists were establishing their base in the state and there was evidence the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti and Adivasi National Liberation Army along with several other outfits had links with them.
Asked whether the anti-incumbency would work against Congress, the Chief Minister said the development works initiated by his government would override all factors and the party would definitely win the next elections.
