Govt ready for talks with militants: Assam Governor
Guwahati: The state government is ready for
talks with militant groups within the framework of the
Constitution, Assam Governor Janaki Ballav Patnaik said on Tuesday.
In the customary address on the opening day of the budget
session of the assembly, Patnaik said while the government
would deal firmly with any act of violence, the doors were
open for negotiation with militants.
"On the law and order front, there has been perceptible
improvement largely due our security forces," he said.
"These efforts have paid dividends and important ULFA
leaders have been arrested in the last few months while two
militant groups, the Karbi Longri National Liberation Front
(KLNLF) and Dima Halam Daoga (DHD-Jewel), have opted for
negotiations and surrendered arms," the governor said.
"The major faction of National Democratic Front of
Bodoland (NDFB) has already signed suspension of operation
agreement with the government while the group is still
indulging in subversive activities," he said.
