PC gets tough with ULFA, NDFB

Union Home Minister P Chidambaram on Friday said no quarter will be given to militancy and hoped Bangladesh will make a "new beginning" by denying sanctuary to ULFA and NDFB.

Chidambaram told reporters in Guwahati on Friday after a two-hour meeting of the Unified Command which is headed by Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi.

He said guidelines have been given to Unified Command, comprising army, paramilitary forces and state police, that it should have a more sharply focussed strategy.

On extending the ceasefire with NDFB which lapsed on 31st December, the Minister said a decision will be taken "in a day or two".

He said he was hopeful that insurgent leaders will no longer get shelter in Bangladesh.
