The peace talks process with the ULFA and other insurgent outfits was progressing well with efforts on to bring the anti-talk and pro-talk factions of the NDFB to the negotiation table, Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said here on Wednesday.
“The progress of the peace talks process with the ULFA and other insurgent outfits is good. The Bodo National Conference comprising all the Bodo organisations met me yesterday and told me they are trying to bring the NDFB anti-talk faction for talks”, Gogoi told reporters here. “If the BNC can bring them (NDFB-AT) for discussions, then there will be peace. There is no formal word from the NDFB chairman Ranjan Daimary but his sister Anjali Daimary was present in the meeting yesterday”, he said.
To queries if the government would not object to the release of the top NDFB (AT) leaders from jail as in the case of ULFA, he said, “we make no distinction among the various underground outfits. Same conditions will apply to all and no discrimination”, Gogoi said.
“The same principles as in the case of ULFA would apply to the NDFB-AT. Insurgency is the number one problem of Assam, but that problem today is on way to resolution”, the chief minister said. “Assam’s situation is slowly improving due to the Congress government’s sincerity to bring the insurgents to the mainstream.
As (former AGP chief minister) Prafulla Kumar Mahanta could not solve the militancy problem, he now demands my resignation for solving the issue”, he asserted.
