Guwahati, July 11 (ANI): The United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) is ready for peace talks within 48 hours, provided the Central Government creates a congenial atmosphere for the free movement of its central leaders to convene an executive council meeting.
ULFA chairman Arabinda Rajkhowas statement was published in an Assamese daily that they favour a peaceful solution to their issues through political dialogue.
Rajkhowas statement said that ULFAs earlier demand for holding peace talks in a third independent country under the aegis of the United Nations had been abandoned following a request by the Jnanpeeth Award winner eminent Assamese litterateur Dr. Indira Goswami.
He alleged that the Central Government is projecting the ULFA as a terrorist outfit.
The ULFA leader clarified that ‘’sovereignty” was neither a condition nor a demand for sitting in peace talk, while reacting to writings by noted writer Susibrata Rai Choudhury.
ULFA is a militant group from Assam which started in 1979 . The Government of India had banned the organization in 1990 and classified it as a terrorist group. (ANI)
