Hundreds protest against ULFA

Nearly hundred patriotic citizens of Assam today took out a protest rally to demonstrate their angers against the United Liberation Front of Asom (Independent) militants, who have been targeting the unarmed people of the State for many years. Following the call of Patriotic People’s Front Assam (PPFA), the conscious people arrived at the front of Guwahati Press Club in the morning and started the protest demonstration. They shouted the slogans like ‘Paresh Barua Murdabad’, ‘ULFA (I) Murdabad’, ‘Militants’ Agents Murdabad’, ‘Enemy of India is the Enemy of Assam’, ‘Enemy of Assam is the Enemy of India’ and then marched on the streets of the city.

“It is a strong message to ULFA (I) leader Paresh Barua, who remains visible through some media outlets and continues disruptive activities including the killing of common people in Assam,” said a statement of PPFA.

The Front argued that ULFA rebels are eliminating the Indian citizens in eastern Assam to make space for the illegal Bangladeshi nationals as a return gesture to the populous country, where once they took refuge. It also asserted that the killing of people must be stopped in Assam at any cost.
