Dibrugarh: ULFA commander-in-chief Paresh Barua's mother today said if the proposed peace process was initiated without her son then the whole exercise would be "useless".

"All the boys (the ULFA leadership) had set out together on a journey to achieve something for Assam and if negotiations are held without my son then the whole process will be useless," 84-year old Miliki Barua told PTI.

"Peace will not return, if he is left out of the talk process.

"If the government has the capacity, then it should bring all of them (ULFA leaders hiding in other countries) back. All the boys went together to realise a common goal, then why is the government bringing back some and leaving out the others?" she questioned.

However, she was confident that her son would return if the government's intentions on the peace process was explained to him and he was convinced.

Signs of peace talks with the ULFA emerged today with Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi appealing to Barua, who is reported to be in Myanmar, to come for talks and offered him safe passage along with the others.

The outfit's chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa has indicated that the banned militant outfit is ready for peace talks.
