Centre Ready To Hold Peace Talks With ULFA(I), Says Himanta Biswa Sarma

A day after the Bodo pact was signed, Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Tuesday said that the Centre is willing to hold peace talks with ULFA(I) faction and appealed to its leader Paresh Barua to come to the negotiating table.


Addressing a press conference at Janata Bhawan in Guwahati on Tuesday, Sarma said that Union Home Minister Amit Shah had clearly said on Monday that if the anti-talk ULFA(I) faction is ready for negotiations, then “the Centre is more than willing to hold dialogue with them for the sake of permanent peace in Assam and the Northeast.”
Referring to Bodo pact, he said that, “a historic Accord was signed on Monday through discussions with all the factions of the NDFB. The Centre and state government want peace in the region.”
Most of the militant outfits in the northeast states, except some in Assam and Manipur, are holding talks but “if we want peace in the region, it should be inclusive by involving all the factions and the outfits,” the minister said.
