Kokrajhar: Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) chief Hagrama Mohilary Tuesday hailed arrested NDFB chief Ranjan Daimary's offer to hold unconditional talks with the government and said he was ready, if necessary, to facilitate it.

Mohilary told reporters here Daimary's proposal for unconditional talks with the government was a welcome step and "I am ready to facilitate it, if both the government and NDFB desires it."

He also appealed to the NDFB leadership to hand over the matter of talks to some senior functionary of the outfit to take the matter forward with the government at the appropriate level.

Daimary's sister and chief of Bodo Women Justice Forum Anjali Daimary, who was allowed to meet him when he was produced before the CJM Court here on May 16, had said he was ready to hold talks with the government without any condition but not with handcuffs on.

"My brother told me he wanted the government to create a positive atmosphere so that the members of NDFB could sit for talks in the future," she said.

Daimary, the prime accused of October 30, 2008 serial blasts in Assam which claimed 92 lives, is currently in nine days' police custody.

Daimary was arrested in Bangladesh and handed over to Indian authorities on May 1.
