UDALGURI, Sept 22 - The Udalguri district committee of Assam Gorkha Sammelan (AGS) has hailed the ceasefire move by the local Gorkha armed outfit � United Gorkha People�s Organisation (UGPO) at its meeting held on Tuesday at Bhanu Rangamancha, Khowrang under Udalguri Police Station.

Hailing the UGPO move, a press release of the AGS issued by Ramesh Dahal and Bhuban Dhamala, president and secretary respectively said that the Gorkha community across the entire North East region is peace- loving and patriotic by nature.

The ceasefire by the UGPO has further proved that the Gorkha community never wants any form of conflict with the government but has showed that it is willing to resolve the myriad problems of the community peacefully through negotiation with the government concerned.

The AGS also hoped that both the union and state governments would soon invite the UGPO to chalk out strategies to resolve their demands peacefully.

It may be recalled that the Gorkha rebel group christened United Gorkha People�s Organisation (UGPO) was formed way back in August 6, 2007 with cadres from many parts of the state under the leadership of Surya Aleh Magar, a self-styled army chief and Lal Bahadur Tamang, president of the outfit. Later, the outfit carried out a series of violent acts in the state to prove its existence.

A total of 30 cadres of the UGPO with their �commander-in-chief� Surya Aleh Magar formally surrendered on Tuesday at Khowrang under Udalguri Police Station in the presence of M Kumar, Additional Superintendent of Police of Udalguri district with four foreign-made pistols, a country-made pistol, a carbine, five magazines and two live cartridges.
