ULFA`s next step to peace: Suspension of Operations


NEW DELHI, Sep 2 (ANI): Leaders of the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) central committee arrived in the national capital today to sign the Suspension of Operations agreement with the Central government.

Chitrabon Hazarika, the finance secretary of the outlawed ULFA, is leading the three-member delegation that includes Sashadhar Choudhary, ULFA`s foreign secretary, and Raju Baruah, ULFA`s military operations head.

Sashadhar Choudhary said that the ULFA members expect to sign the Suspension of Operations agreement with the Central government tomorrow.

Though till now there is no clear information that who all will preside the meeting from the government side, but according to sources it is clear that it will be a secretary level meeting.

The ULFA leaders landed at Delhi airport today, but were not allowed to meet mediapersons and were taken away from a separate gate.

Earlier, in August, the entire ULFA central committee under the leadership of Arabinda Rajkhowa had met Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram in the national capital, and presented him with their set of demands.

The ULFA leaders were arrested in Bangladesh and handed over to the Indian government in 2010. They are now out on bail and have been carrying the peace talks.

Currently large number of ULFA cadres has been placed in different camps at Nalbari and Tinsukia and have submitted their weapons to the government.

Now only the elusive ULFA commander in chief Paresh Baruah is left to join talks. By Devesh Gupta
