Today Assam is going though a turning point. People are finally realising that all the communities and tribes of Assam have to come together to fight against illegal immigrants. It is the best time for ULFA to strengthen its fight for sovereign Assam, with it BOR AXOM identity engulfing all of Assam including our Boro brothers, against Bangladeshis and Corrupt political practices.
