Talks without Paresh Barua unrealistic: ULFA
Guwahati: Peace talks without ULFA`s
`commander-in-chief` Paresh Barua was not possible and the
demand for sovereignty cannot be given up, three top arrested
leaders of the group on Thursday said.
"It is possible to hold talks within the framework of
the Constitution but talks without Barua would be unrealistic
and would not solve the problem...sovereignty must be the
basis for talks though whether it will be achieved or not, the
future alone can tell," ULFA `publicity secretary` Mithinga
Daimary told reporters here.
Daimary was produced before the Kamrup chief judicial
magistrate`s court along with ULFA `vice president` Pradip
Gogoi and `cultural secretary` Pranati Deka during the day in
connection with several cases.
On `chairman` Arabinda Rajkhowa`s surrender, Daimary
said "Things are different now. Talks held with the chairman
in custody cannot be the same as had he been free.
"The chairman alone cannot take certain decisions but
the entire general council of the group has to decide on the
future course of action," he said.
There is no division in ULFA and "if our ideals are
respected and honoured we are ready for talks", Deka said.
