I am not opposed to talks: Paresh Barua
Guwahati: ULFA Commander-in-Chief Paresh
Barua on Tuesday said he was not opposed to talks but against any
diversion in the outfit`s ideology.
In an e-mail sent to the media here, Barua claimed
that the solution to the Assam`s problem had become more
complicated with the "various uncalled for statements" by
Sanmilita Jatia Abhibartan`s convenor Dr Hiren Gohain.
Gohain, who along with other prominent intellectuals
of the state decided to help in the process of peace talks,
had recently remarked that Barua alone cannot decide the fate
of the state and talks should proceed irrespective of whether
he comes for negotiations or not.
Reacting to this, Barua said, "ULFA`s struggle alone
cannot decide the fate of Assamese people. I am just a part of
"I am not opposed to talks. I am just against
deviating from our ideology. Dr Gohain is not aware of ULFA`s
history and long struggle for Assam`s sovereignty", he added.
Dr Gohain`s statement has helped the vested interests
and has only further complicated the process to resolve the
problems facing the people of Assam, he added.
Gohain had said at the inauguration of the
Abhibartan`s Nalbari district unit on Sunday "Barua cannot
decide the fate of Assam. It is in the hands of the common
people and they alone can take a decision in this regard".
