GUWAHATI, June 10 � Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today said that the pro-talk ULFA cadres would have to formally sign a ceasefire accord vowing suspension of operations, before the peace talks takes a concrete shape.
�Everything would be done as per the norms and even though they have come overground formal announcement of ceasefire from both the sides would be a necessity,� Gogoi said, while replying to a question at a press conference today.
Gogoi also informed that the Ranjan Daimary-faction of the banned NDFB has expressed its willingness to meet him to discuss certain issues, to which he had obliged.
