GUWAHATI, Aug 3 � A delegation of the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) will go to New Delhi tomorrow to submit a charter of demands to the Government of India to pave the way for formal talks for political solution to the conflicts.
ULFA sources said that the delegation would be headed by the chairman of the outfit Arabinda Rajkhowa, while the other members of the delegation would be vice chairman Pradeep Gogoi, foreign secretary Sasha Choudhury, finance secretary Chitraban Hazarika, cultural secretary Pranati Deka, deputy commander in chief Raju Baruah and publicity secretary Mithinga Daimary.
It is still not decided when the charter of demands would be submitted, but the ULFA is planning to do so on Friday. However, sources said that formal talks would not start during the ensuing trip of the leaders of the outfit.
Sources said that after the submission of the formal charter of demands, the government might take some time to study the same and formal talks would start some time later.
ULFA sources further said that the outfit would make its charter of demands public immediately after submitting the same to the Government of India. The charter of demands was prepared by the ULFA on the basis of the draft prepared by the Sanmilita Jatiya Abhibartan. Only some additions and subtractions were made following a series of discussions and efforts were made to ensure that the charter fulfils the hopes and aspirations of all the indigenous people of the State ULFA sources said.
