ULFA reiterates Assam sovereignty, lashes out at Mrinal

After a brief silence, the United Liberation Front of Asom on Tuesday makes it further plain and simple that it will not deviate from the armed struggle for an independent Assam. In its mouthpiece, Swadhinota, the banned rebel outfit dared the government to hold plebiscite on the question of Assam sovereignty. ULFA said the government’s on going peace initiative a big farce and that these will not be able to bring them to talk this way.

It also slammed its pro truce leader Mrinal Hazarika, Jiten Dutta et al that they are psedo revolutionaries and that Hazarika who announced unilateral ceasefire with the government is more a government spokesman and less a former rebel leader. According to them, Hazarika’s stand on sovereignty resembles to that Union home secretary G K Pillai and Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi.
