Gogoi positive on talk with ULFA

Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Saturday sees some sort of positive development in terms of talk with the government.

Addressing a press conference in Guwahati on Saturday, Gogoi said talks minus ULFA Comander in Chief Paresh Barua is possible. The Chief Minister said, "we donot have a definite reply from ULFA but the signals are quite positive." He said the doors are still open and the government wants every body to be present in the talk. But he was quick to add "talks can still take place without Paresh Baruah."

According to Gogoi,"talks have been started with the pro-peace NDFB group without its 'chairman' Ranjan Daimary and also with the NSCN without Phizo. If 80 percent come, talks can be held." The Chief Minister said there is nothing new in what Paresh Barua's recent list of targets. He said, "We have been receiving them for the last 20 years or so."

The Chief Minister on Friday told reporters in Kolkata that that there were indications that the ULFA was ready for a dialogue and something in writing was expected from the proscribed group.
