Modi visit may fetch Anup Chetia!
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s proposed visit to Dhaka is expected to clear the decks for deporting Anup Chetia to boost the peace process with ULFA.
Sources told Assam Times in New Delhi that Modi will raise the issue during his trip Dhaka which would help Assam get the ULFA founder general secretary back.
“Chetia’s comeback is expected to boost the ULFA-Centre peace process which will help BJP woo voters in the run up to the assembly polls early next year,” say sources.
For the last couple of years, the Centre has been keen to get Chetia back. The UPA government signed extradition treaty after the ULFA leader himself evinced keen interest to be deported. But Dhaka’s delaying tactic made it difficult to be implemented.
“Dhaka is averse to deport Chetia only because of the uncertainty over the land deal which was running into a hail of protest in Assam. Since the uncertainty is over that’ why, Dhaka is bound to extradite the ULFA top leader who has been languishing in a local jail in Dhaka for the last many years,” a senior home ministry official told Assam Times.
