Guwahati: ULFA `deputy commander-in-chief` Raju Baruah, who was released from Gauhati Central Jail on Saturday, said that he would initiate measures to start the process for peace talks.

Granted bail in two TADA cases and a CBI case by the court of the additional sessions judge, Kamrup here yesterday, Baruah, after his release from jail, told reporters that he
would do so to solve the peace issue.

All the jailed ULFA leaders should be released as soon as possible to facilitate the peace talks process with the government, he said.

Baruah also said that his organisation was working for the interest of the state and would continue to do so in the future.

The proscribed outfit`s deputy `C-in-C`, who was handed over to India by Bangladesh along with his chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa last year, left for his native place Bahjani in
Nalbari district under tight security.

Family and friends had come to the jail to welcome him.

Baruah`s mother told reporters that she was eagerly waiting to see her son after 20 years and the ULFA problem should be solved as both the outfit and the government wanted
a resolution to the conflict.
