DIBRUGARH, Dec 26 - ULFA general secretary Golap Baruah alias Anup Chetia today urged social organisations, literary bodies, ethnic organisations and the youth groups to uphold the unifying ideals of the founder of Ahom kingdom, Chaolung Sukapha, to ensure the State�s progress and prosperity.

Chetia, who has expressed his desire to join the peace process, told leaders of various organisations here that the need of the hour is to unite the State�s diverse ethnic people to march cohesively towards harmony and development.

�We can take the first Ahom ruler Sukapha as a model because he had succeeded in uniting people of diverse cultures and faiths during his time. Let us imbibe his ideals for unity and peace in Assam,� he said.

Chetia was felicitated by leaders of various organisations at the campus of the Dibrugarh Sahitya Sabha office here today. Earlier, he was accorded a rousing traditional welcome at Chiring Chapori.

Chetia called upon youths to work sincerely for society and not inculcate traits that cause embarrassment to the elders. He said youths, in any society, must believe in discipline and hardwork to remain vibrant.

Recalling his days here during the Assam Agitation, he said that as one of the activists of the All Assam Gana Sangram Parishad, he often visited the Dibrugarh Sahitya Sabha office, as it was used as an office for the movement. He, however, regretted that during the agitation, communal divide in various shades had also sprouted in Assam.

The ULFA leader was also accorded a reception at the office of the Sadou Assam Mottock Yuva Chattra Sanmilan in the DDA Market Complex in the city en route to his birthplace in Jeraigaon near Chabua town.

Chetia was recently released from the Guwahati Central Jail after securing bail in four cases lodged against him. He was extradited from Bangladesh in November.

Chetia was in Bangladesh jail since his arrest in 1997 on the charges of carrying fake passports, illegally possession of foreign currencies and cross-border intrusion.
