Government-ULFA Talks on April 9
After a gap of six months, the government will hold dialogue with ULFA on 9th April as part of its efforts to bring a lasting solution to the decades-old insurgency problem in Assam.
Union Home Secretary R K Singh and other senior Home Ministry officials will hold peace talks with ULFA led by its 'chairman' Arabinda Rajkhowa and try to iron out differences on key demands of the banned outfit.
The dialogue with ULFA will be held after nearly six months. The last such meeting was held on 25th October in New Delhi.
Members of the rebel group -- numbering around 600 -- are now in special camps, called as 'Nabanirman Kendras'.
ULFA 'commander-in-chief' Paresh Baruah has steadfastly opposed any peace talk with the government and vowed to continue his fight for a "sovereign" Assam.
