Guwahati: The Assam government on Tuesday said ULFA will have to give up its demand for sovereignty and use of violence before the ban on the outfit was lifted.

"ULFA will have to formally give up its demand for sovereignty and abjure violence before steps can be taken to revoke the ban," Assam Health minister Himanta Biswa Sharma told reporters here.

He said the government will grant special permission to ULFA's top brass, including its chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa, for holding their central executive council meeting.

On January 1, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi had announced that the ban on ULFA can be lifted if necessary, though operations will continue against those outfit members who still resort to violence.
