No downgrade of talks with ULFA: Govt

By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, Oct 27 � The Government of India will not �downgrade� the process of talks with the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) for a political solution of the issues as apprehended by certain sections, asserted Sambhu Singh, Joint Secretary (North East) of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).

Singh said that Central government�s interlocutor PC Haldar, a former Director of the Intelligence Bureau, would now continue the talks with the ULFA on the charter of demands submitted by the outfit.

The MHA officer revealed that in addition to the charter of demands, the ULFA wanted to set up �Nava Nirman Kendras� and to launch various economic activities. The Assam Chief Secretary will review the progress of such activities once in a month, while the Union Home Secretary will review the same on quarterly basis, Singh said.

He also clarified that such reviews of the economic activities would have nothing to do with the main charter of demands of the ULFA.
