Paresh faction not to accept talks outcome

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, Oct 15 � Though the Government of India has decided to resume peace talks with the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) with a meeting between the Union Home Secretary and the leaders of the militant outfit on October 25, it is clear that the hardline faction of the outfit headed by Paresh Baruah has not softened its stand on the issue of talks with the Government.

The anti-talk faction of the ULFA has made it clear that it would continue with its struggle for sovereignty of Assam and asserted that the outfit did not struggle for 32 years for signing any accord with the Government of India.

In a release here, publicity in-charge of the anti-talk faction of the ULFA, Arunodoi Dohotiya said that if the ULFA chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa signs any accord with the Government of India by going against the principles of the outfit, they would not accept the same.

Dohotiya said that Rajkhowa has been giving misleading statements since his release on bail and he should clarify his position before the people of Assam. He said that the people of North East have bitter experiences of signing accords with the Government of India and cited the example of the Assam Accord in this regard.

The statement further pointed out that the people of Assam have been fighting for the solution of the burning problems under the leadership of Akhil Gogoi but the ULFA was born not to put demands before the Government of India but to fight for sovereignty of Assam.

The hard-hitting statement days before the talks with the ULFA are scheduled to resume, is significant as it made it very clear that the hardliners in the outfit would not accept the result of the talks.

It may be mentioned here that according to the plan chalked out by the Government of India, the talks with the ULFA would resume with a meeting with the Union Home Secretary and afterwards the Centre�s interlocutor PC Haldar would take over.
