Last Updated: Friday, June 3, 2011 - 16:58

Guwahati: The proscribed ULFA Paresh Baruah
faction on Friday served a `quit notice` to a private oil and gas
company in Assam alleging that they were exploiting the
state`s natural resources against the local people`s interest.

"We are giving them the notice to stop all their
operations in the state and leave within one and half months
from today," said an ULFA statement on the quit notice to
Shiv-Vani Oil and Gas Exploration Services Ltd.

"If the company based outside Assam tries to continue its
operations here with the help of security forces going against
the interest of the local people, then its impact will be on
the employees of the company," the statement by its central
publicity wing chief Arun Oday Dehotia said.

Company officials couldn`t be reached for comment.
