Ex-MLAs call for talks with ultra groups

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, May 3 � The All Assam Ex-MLA Association, at its fourth triennial convention recently, opposed all violent acts of all sorts of insurgency and secessionist movements in the State, and urged the State Government to thwart such forces with a firm hand and at the same time, if necessary, to start peace dialogues for ushering in lasting peace in the region.

In a statement, the association said that by another resolution the convention expressed grave concern over the recurring menace of flood and erosion, and urged the Government to compensate the losses and rehabilitate the flood-affected at the earliest.

By a third resolution, the association demanded that the Government take serious note of the burgeoning unemployment problem and chalk out a well-planned policy to engage the 26-lakh unemployed youths in gainful employment avenues. "This is necessary to ensure that the unemployed do not end up helping the cause of terrorist and secessionist forces,� it said.

The convention later formed a 25-member executive committee for the next three years with Debeswar Bora as president and Baloram Nath as executive president.

The convention also said that Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and Opposition leader Chandra Mohan Patowary attended the meet and assured the members of the association of looking into their grievances soon.
