`ULFA claim contrary to Baruah`s statement against violence`
Guwahati: The ULFA`s claim of responsibility
for the Friday`s attack on the CPRF had authorities expressing
doubts over its authenticity as it ran contrary to the banned
group`s self-styled Commander-in-Chief Paresh Baruah`s recent
statement against violence.
In a statement on July 9, Baruah had condemned the
previous day`s bomb blast carried out on railway tracks in
Kokrajhar district by the anti-talk NDFB faction of Ranjan
The claim appeared without basis since Baruah had made an
appeal for peace urging those responsible for the blast not to
target the indigenous people, sources said.
"Such incidents can never bring about liberty for the
people of the country, rather such incidents are attacks on
the indigenous people. They created disbelief and suspicion
among the people," Baruah`s statement said.
The sources were also apprehensive that the ULFA claim
could hamper the peace process at a time when the Centre`s
peace interlocutor, P C Haldar, had a very "cordial" meeting
with the group`s chairman, Arabinda Rajkhowa, in Guwahati
central jail recently to initiate peace talks.
On July 23, Haldhar had an hour-long "satisfactory"
meeting with the jailed ULFA supremo and discussed the process
of initiating peace talks with the proscribed outfit.
