Guwahati: Former Assam chief minister and
senior AGP leader Prafulla Kumar Mahanta on Thursday said he was not
not convinced by the tall claims made by Chief Minister
Tarun Gogoi of achieving significant breakthrough in the
process of peace talks with the ULFA.
"Gogoi has said he hopes Paresh Baruah (ULFA
commander-in-chief and leader of the anti-talk faction) will
come to the peace process which indicates that there is some
understanding between them", Mahanta said in an informal chat
with reporters his residence to celebrate Rongali Bihu,
Assam`s national festival here.

"Arabinda Rajkhowa has already gifted him a Kahi Bati
(brass bowl, a traditional gift) and Gogoi hopes Paresh, as he
calls him, will do the same. I wonder what prompted him to say
that", he said in a lighter vein.
Gogoi on the contrary had accused Mahanta of having
links with Paresh Baruah after his statement that the peace
process will not be meaningful if the elusive ULFA leader was
not included in the peace process.
