Tarun Gogoi asks Centre to resume talks with ULFA (Pro-talk) faction
Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Tuesday asked the Centre to resume talks with the pro-talk faction of insurgent outfit ULFA at the earliest.
Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Tuesday asked the Centre to resume talks with the pro-talk faction of insurgent outfit ULFA at the earliest.
"I urge the government of India to resume peace talks with ULFA at the earliest as any delay may give wrong signals," the chief minister tweeted.
Last Sunday, ULFA (Pro-Talk) chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa had threatened to abandon the peace process and take an "alternative path" if the Centre fails to resolve their problems by November 30.
Rajkhowa had alleged that the BJP government at the Centre was quite apathetic to the demands raised by the pro-talk faction of ULFA.
Rajkhowa and his associates has held only one round of talks with the BJP-led government in May this year when a delegation of ULFA (pro-talk group) had met Home Minister Rajnath Singh and other Home Ministry officials.
