Assam keeps door open for anti-talk ULFA faction
Kolkata: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Sunday said his government has kept the doors open for peace talks with the anti-talk faction of ULFA, but first there has to be peace.
"There is a ceasefire with ULFA`s pro-talk faction and the process is on. We have kept doors open for the anti-talk faction also, but not for violence," Gogoi said here.
He was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of prize distribution ceremony of the annual flower show at the Agri Horticultural Society of India.
