GUWAHATI, Feb 13 � ULFA �commander-in-chief� Paresh Baruah�s wife and his children, who are hiding in Bangladesh, are willing to return to Assam but were being prevented by him, former Union Home Secretary GK Pillai claimed today.
�Baruah�s sons cannot speak their own language. His sons do not know Assam,� Pillai told reporters on the sidelines of a seminar here.
�Baruah has only two options before him � either join the peace process or be eliminated. He will be marginalised in the years to come,� he asserted.
Pillai was here to attend a national seminar �Sustaining Peace in North East India : Changing Dimensions� organised by the Centre for Development and Peace Studies.
Baruah�s wife Boby Bhuyan Baruah and his two sons Tahsan Ankur Khan Sunlee and Akash Khan Wanlee lead lavish lives in Bangladesh, intelligence sources said.
Their lifestyle is a cause of discord between the ULFA �c-n-c� and his cadres who lead a hard life in their hideouts inside jungles and on mountains, the sources added. � PTI
