ULFA pro-talk faction opposes bandh call

By The Assam Tribune

LAKHIMPUR (ASSAM), April 19 � ULFA Chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa today asserted that the pro-talk faction was opposed to the bandh call given by the outfit�s anti-talk faction in protest against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh�s scheduled day-long visit tomorrow, reports PTI.

�The Centre has honoured its commitment for talks with the outfit to resolve the long-standing issues and we are opposed to the bandh in protest against the Prime Minister�s visit,� Rajkhowa told PTI here.

ULFA anti-talk faction has called a 12 hour bandh beginning from 5 AM tomorrow in protest against the Prime Minister�s day-long visit to Guwahati.

Rajkhowa said the talks were proceeding in the right direction according to the Charter of Demands submitted to the Centre and �we are satisfied with the progress�, he added.

On the issue of sovereignty, Rajkhowa said the issue per se has not been included in the charter of demands as �this is not just a demand but must be discussed as a right of every Assamese and must be included in the talks process�.

Referring to the anti-big dams protest in the State, Rajkhowa said that this was another issue of conflict with the government and though �we are not directly involved in the movement, we support it�.
