Guwahati: The proscribed ULFA on Thursday
reorganised its armed wing by dismantling its existing
battalions and instead bringing all the cadres under the
`mobile military headquarters`(MMH).
An ULFA e-mail to PTI and other media houses here by its
publicity convenor Arunudoy Dohotia stated that all the ULFA
battalions had been dismantled and the post of `battalion
commander` abolished as per resolutions adopted at a meeting
of the outfit under its elusive `commander-in-chief` Paresh
Baruah.

A ten-day meeting of the armed wing of the ULFA was
held from March 20 at the outfit`s `mobile military
headquarters`(MMH).

All the armed wing cadres will now onwards be functioning
directly under its MMH headed by Baruah to be administered
through the `command system`, Dohotia said.

Besides adopting the new system replacing the old
formations, the meeting had also resolved to publicise the
militant group`s `revolutionary messages` among the people,
the e-mail added.
Most of ULFA`s battalions had been rendered leaderless and
defunct after their commanders came overground and the
outfit`s top brass, including `chairman` Arabinda Rajkhowa,
were arrested and the first round of peace talks with
the Centre was held after their release on bail.
