No further division of State: Gogoi

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 2 � Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today said that the peace process with different militant outfits was proceeding in the right direction even as he firmly ruled out any further division of the State to accommodate the demands of the outfits.

�We are for a considerate response to the issues raised by the militant outfits but no further division of the State is possible to accommodate their demands. We have made this very clear,� Gogoi said at a press conference.

Gogoi said that while the ULFA was scheduled to hold its first round of talks with the Centre tomorrow, decks had been cleared for signing of agreements with the KNLF and the UPDS.

In addition, Gogoi said, all the five Adivasi militant groups were under ceasefire with the Adivasi National Liberation Army (ANLA) making a unilateral announcement to that effect on Thursday. He added that some differences were there with the Nunisa faction of the DHD but that things were moving smoothly with the Jewel faction of the outfit.

On Maoist activities, the Chief Minister said that Maoist infiltration into the State was a fact and that the ULFA too had helped the Maoists in their job. Two overground organizations, i.e., Assam Students Youth Organization and the Chah Mazdoor Suraksha Samiti were also found to be assisting the Maoist cause, he said.

�We are serious about checking the Maoist bid to create unrest in the State,� he added.
