Gogoi hints at amnesty for ULFA boss

In his renewed appeal to ULFA's anti talk faction, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Wednesday said that his government is all prepared for amnesty to Paresh Baruah, if the ULFA chief comes overground for talks.

Addressing a press conference in Dispur, the chief minister said that if Baruah comes to fight the polls, would write to the Centre urging it to announce general amnesty. “Then he be able to do something for the people,” said the chief minister.

"Why don't you come back to fight for the people? You are free to form a political party and contest elections to prove that people support your causes,” Gogoi asked Baruah.
