Stating that it would never compromise on its demand for sovereignty or independence, the outlawed United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) Monday rejected the peace initiative taken by the newly floated Citizen’s Forum. “There is no question of compromising on the main demand of sovereignty and we cannot understand how the Citizen’s Forum is thinking of peace talks without the core demand of independence. We are not acceptable to any such negotiations or solution without independence,” self-styled ULFA commander-in-chief Paresh Baruah said in an e-mailed statement. The Citizens Forum in Assam April 11 claimed the top ULFA leadership, including its elusive commander-in-chief, would come for peace talks. The 11-member forum of writers, former police officials, academics and rights leaders was formed earlier this month to help broker peace between the ULFA and the government. Forum convenor and noted academic Hiren Gohain had earlier claimed they had got informal feelers from the ULFA leadership that if the government was sincere, then even Paresh Baruah would not object to negotiations.
