ULFA discusses major demands with Centre

A six member delegation of the United Liberation Front of Asom discussed its charter of demands with the Centre in yet another crucial rounds of talks on Tuesday. Led by chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa, the team held talks with the home ministry officials including joint secretary attached to the north east Sambhu Singh at 3 in the afternoon.

Apart from the charter of demands ULFA placed before the Union home minister P Chidambaram in August, several other issues came up for discussion on Tuesday in presence of centre’s peace interlocutor P C Haldar. These include observance of ground rules, signed by both sides, surrender of arms and ammunition and total halt of operations by security forces against the pro-talk faction.

The team comprises chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa, vice chairman Pradeep Gogoi, deputy commander in chief Raju Baruah, foreign secretary Sashadhar Chaudhury, finance secretary Chitraban Hazarika and publicity secretary Mithinga Daimary. The team misses cultural secretary Pranati Deka and political adviser Bhimakanta Burahgohain.
