Guwahati: The anti-talk faction of the NDFB led by Ranjan Daimary, Wednesday claimed that it has no plans of indulging in violence during the upcoming Assembly elections in Assam.

"The NDFB has no so-called 'blue-print' planning attacks during the forthcoming polls and we warn forces carrying out such misinformation to refrain from doing so," the outfit's general secretary N Dinthi Gwra said in a statement e-mailed to the media here.

The outfit warned the media not "to dramatise or suppress facts and play an important role in portraying the correct image of the outfit before the public".

Gwra also alleged that the security forces were engaged in fake encounters and the three youths killed during an operation in Goalpara district were not National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) cadres as claimed by the government.

"The government and security forces should refrain from such irresponsible acts in the greater interest of the people," he added.

The outfit also demanded withdrawal of the Disturbed Area Act and Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, 1958 from the state as with these two acts, the government has "curtailed" the rights of the people of the region.

The Assembly elections are to be held in Assam in May this year.
