ULFA’s Paresh Baruah faction has asked the Dalai Lama not to speak ill of China during his upcoming visit to Assam.
In a statement, ULFA(I) chairman Dr Abhijit Asom said that his anti-China remarks on the soil of Assam might trigger a 1962 like aggression on the state. He made it plain that ULFA-I has nothing to oppose Dalai Lama’s visit to the state if he tries to revive the Buddhist culture which existed in the ancient Assam. But he must not utter any word against China on behalf of India saying that China has no hostility with the state.
On the other hand, the IIT-Guwahati has disallowed a function at its premises proposed to release the Assamese version of his book. The authority with the country’s premier seat of science and technology has simply rejected the prayer to hold the ceremony without citing any reason.
