Guwahati: An intellectual group on Saturday gave the pro-talk ULFA faction, led by Arabinda Rajkhowa, a list of issues which could be discussed with the Centre.

Under the banner of the Sanmilita Jatiya Abhibartan, the intellectuals who are facilitating talks between the ULFA and government, handed over the demands and issues which needs to be resolved at the earliest to bring permanent peace in the state.

Abhibartan's convener and Sahitya Akademi winner Dr Hiren Gohain handed over the document to ULFA chairman at a function here and expressed the hope that the talks between the outfit and Centre would lead to positive results.

The document has included various burning issues facing the state and the indigenous Assamese population, Gohain said.

"I am hopeful that the talks will be fruitful as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has made it clear that the Indian constitution is flexible and necessary changes could be made to fulfill the aspirations of the indigenous Assamese," Gohain said.

Rajkhowa said the list of issues prepared by the prominent people reflect the aspirations of the Assamese people and they would go through it in true spirit of finding a permanent solution to problems of the indigenous people.
