Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Tarun
Gogoi on Thursday said the peace process with ULFA is on the right
track and will continue even without the group`s elusive
`commander-in-chief` Paresh Baruah.
"We know Baruah for his anti-talk stance. But the
peace process will continue and we will strive for a permanent
solution to the insurgency problem of the state," Gogoi told
reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

"With all the leaders, including chairman Arabinda
Rajkhowa, expressing willingness for talks, the talks process
is on right track," he said.

Gogoi was optimistic that the peace process initiated
by the government will usher in an era of development in the
state.
Meanwhile, there were reports that the banned ULFA was
holding a secret meeting of its `executive committee` in lower
Assam`s Nalbari district to discuss the modalities of talks.

However, there was no official confirmation of the
meeting and its details.
