ULFA must give up sovereignty demand for lifting of ban: Min
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.
