Ulfa faces split over peace process

At a time when Ulfa vice -chairman Pradip Gogoi and publicity chief Mithinga Daimary were mobilising public opinion in furthering the peace process, Paresh Baruah took a belligerent posture — no talks and no compromise on its demand for sovereignty or independence.

The Ulfa commander-in-chief’s adamant stand of rejecting any peace initiative minus independence is seen a snub to the outfit’s overground leaders who recently helped in the formation of the Citizens’ Forum to broker peace with the government.

The 11-member forum last week claimed that the top Ulfa leadership, including Baruah, would come for peace talks.
