MASS doubtful of fruitful peace process

The Manab Adhikar Sangram Samiti is doubtful of a fruitful peace process following the recent unilateral ceasefire by the A and C companies of ULFA’s 28th battalion.

Addressing a press conference in the city on Sunday, the human rights organization leaders said the government has again shown its lack of interest for holding a fruitful negotiation with ULFA. They said the way the cadres of A and C companies of ULFA’s 28th battalion are going to carry forward the peace process will not be a successful one. For the MASS leaders, need of the hour is an amicable political dialogue between Centre and the ULFA.

MASS adviser Lachit Bordoloi said the government lacks interest for holding talks with ULFAans that any peace process with a handful of ULFA cadres of two companies of 28th battalion will not be successful to restore peace and normalcy. Here, therefore, stressed a political talk to end the armed chapter.

The MASS adviser has apprehended yet another string of of fratricidal clashes in the state following the recent unilateral ceasefire with the government by two companies of ULFA’s 28th battalion. They urged ULFA leadership along with those announced unilateral ceasefire not to go for any confrontation on it. “We do urge ULFA leadership along with those in unilateral ceasefire not to go for any confrontation that could deteriorate the situation, “ Bordoloi said.

Addressing the press conference, MASS chairman Bubumoni Goswami said rued that the government has yet to take action against those indicted in the Justice K N Saikia panel report of secret killings. MASS chairman Bubumoni Goswami said the government announced early action against the indicted people but has yet to do it.
