An End to Militancy in Assam
It is nice to know that, the leaders of A and C companies of the 28 battalion of the ULFA has declared a unilateral cease-fire and wishes to come forward for talks with the Government within the framework of the Constitution of India.
However, the top leadership of the outfit would continue regrouping and mobilizing the cadres in the upper Assam districts. This is because militancy has become a "Profession" for them.
There is no question of any principle or ideal. It is just a means of 'Easy Money', of which the youths of North-East are extremely fond of. As such, they donot feel a pinch when sustaining themselves in the country of Bangladesh, against which the ULFA came up in during the Assam Agitation.
In Assam, militancy has become just another profession like beggery, theft, robbery and prostitution. No society is proud of these means of livelihood, but they exist.
