Jeraigaon (Assam): ULFA chairman Arabinda
Rajkhowa o Tuesday visited the outfit`s elusive
‘commander-in-chief’ Paresh Baruah`s mother Miliki Baruah, who
insisted that her son, general secretary Anup Chetia and
others be brought back for the peace talks.
"As all of you went out together on your struggle 30
years ago, now bring Paresh Baruah, Anup and others back by
any means for the talks for a lasting solution to the Assam
problem. Otherwise it will remain unsolved," an emotional and
weeping octogenarian Miliki said.
Baruah is reportedly in China and is still insistent on
discussing the outfit`s core issue of sovereignty.
Accompanied by the outfit`s idealogue Bhimkanta
Buragohain, Rajkhowa came to Jeraigaon in Dibrugarh district
and visited Baruah`s mother for the first time since his
release on bail recently.
Rajkhowa`s wife Kaberi Kochari also accompanied him
during his visit.
The ULFA leaders also visited the ancestral residence of
Chetia, now in a Dhaka jail, also in the same village.
Rajkhowa later told the media here that when the decision
taking general council of the ULFA meets it will discuss the
release of all its jailed leaders and the cadres missing
since Operation All Clear in Bhutan in December 2002.
