Guwahati: The anti-talk faction of the ULFA today claimed the recent peace initiative launched by the Centre with arrested leaders of the group would prove to be a failure and any initiative should revolve around the demand for sovereignty.

"The recent initiative will not be successful as the arrested leaders do not have the right to raise the demand of sovereignty," elusive ULFA 'commander-in-chief' Paresh Baruah said in an e-mail.

"No one can weaken the ULFA and any initiative (for talks) should revolve around the demand for sovereignty," he said.

Unless the problems of the "indigenous people" of the northeast were solved, permanent peace could not be achieved.

"The long drawn political conflict with the Centre will continue until and unless the problems of the people are not addressed," Baruah, who has rejected the peace initiative, said.
