GUWAHATI, Nov 22 - The Forum for Terrorist Victim Family, Assam, has urged the government not to offer amnesty to any militant leader involved with the killing of innocents.
The Forum also maintained that it is going to support the ongoing peace talks with the armed outfits of the State.
The forum, in a statement issued by its functionaries Ranjit Kumar Phukan and Indranil Kalita, appealed to the people of Assam not to welcome the militant leaders with traditional gamosa as and when they appear in the public functions.
�We want peace in Assam and we are not against the peace process. But we reiterate our demand for justice to the victim families. So, we appeal to the government not to withdraw any case registered against the militant leaders even if they are participating in the peace talks,� said the statement.
The Forum strongly denounced the practice of offering membership to the former armed militants by various political parties and asked the party leadership not to consider their candidatures in the forthcoming State Legislative Assembly election.
It also reminded the government about their commitment to support the families of terror victims. It argued that the authority has to spent a huge amount of money to run the designated camps for the surrendered militants, but does not bother to address the grievances of thousands of terror victim families.
