Guwahati, Nov 14 (PTI) | Publish Date: 11/14/2021 12:01:49 PM IST

The proscribed ULFA (Independent) on Sunday extended its unilateral ceasefire, announced in May this year, by another three months.

In a statement to the press, the outfit’s chief Paresh Asom said the decision to extend the ceasefire by three more months has been taken for the “cause of public good”.

“The ULFA(I) will refrain from all military action during the period,” he said.

The group had announced a unilateral ceasefire for three months on May 15 in view of the ongoing pandemic. It was immediately after the new BJP-led government of Himanta Biswa Sarma had assumed office in the state on May 10, with the chief minister urging the outfit to come forward for negotiations.

The ceasefire was extended by another three months on August 14 as the pandemic situation was yet to improve, the outfit had said. Sarma, responding to the ceasefire, had said that it will create a congenial atmosphere for peace in the state and had assured that the government will take proactive steps in initiating the peace process.

Though the ULFA(I) was not engaging in armed activities during the ceasefire period, it has been reportedly continuing with the recruitment of new members. A purported recruitment module of the outfit was busted by a joint team of the police and Army in Charaideo district on September 30.
