The Karbi outfit, Karbi Longri North Cachar Hill Liberation Front (KLNLF) has threatened to attack railway properties, central government institutions and Hindi speaking people after September if the Centre failed to initiate talks with it. The unilateral ceasefire announced by the outfit ends in September. KLNLF publicity secretary Rezek Dera in an interview with media persons at an undisclosed location recently expressed disappointment with the government’s attitude in pursuing peace in the region and finding a suitable solution to the insurgency issue. Stating that the government’s suggestion of total surrender on part of the KLNLF was “unacceptable” R. Dera said “the Union government is asking us to set down all our logistics including our full range of arms and ammunition and then come to the negotiating table. Can the Government issue same dictum to the NSCN (I-M)?” He accused the centre of adopting different yardsticks to fathom NSCN and others. He also alleged that the security forces, at the behest of government machineries were carrying out cold blooded operations against KLNLF members without any provocation and at a time when the organization was showing total restrain. “Even they are slaughtering innocent villagers by engineering fake encounters,” he alleged. The publicity secretary claimed that the KLNLF has large stock of lethal arms, ammunition and explosives besides over 200-trained cadres ready to carry out violent strikes if the government continued with its laidback attitude in solving their demands. He disclosed that some newly recruited activists were getting trained at different insurgency schools located in Bangladesh and Myanmar. The KLNLF leader said the government machineries or armed forces should not undermine the determination or strength of the Karbi militant body. He asserted that the KLNLF and ULFA has a close understanding but that it necessarily did not mean that cadres of both the organizations were sharing food from the same plate or were exchanging garments. “We are maintaining separate distinctiveness,” said Dera and added that their goals were not similar. He said the ULFA cadres were active in almost all the districts of Assam. Talking about the bond between KLNLF and UPDS, Dera said that his organization had nothing specific against the UPDS or its leaders.
