Gogoi warns ULFA of stern action

Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has warned United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) of stern action after six immigrant labourers were allegedly killed by the banned outfit.

Dispur (Assam), May 17 : Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has warned United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) of stern action after six immigrant labourers were allegedly killed by the banned outfit.

"We are very concerned about the killing six innocent Bihari people. We strongly condemn the killing. We have already instructed the administration to deal with it firmly. It was nothing but a sign of desperation for ULFA," Gogoi said.

Though he admitted that ULFA was bent on creating trouble in the state, and that it was not interested in bringing peace and prosperity for final settlement, Gogoi called upon the rebels to negotiate with the government.

"I request them to give up the path of violence for the interest of Assam, for the future generation and for better future of our state. I am appealing the rebels to give up this path that will not lead to any solution. It will bring misery, hardship and misunderstanding among all sections of the people," he said.

The rebels on Tuesday gunned down six persons - all of them Hindi-speaking - in two separate incidents in Dibrugarh and Sivasagar districts of Upper Assam.

They have often targeted immigrant labourers from Bihar, whom they accuse of diluting Assamese culture. The ULFA had earlier killed as many as 63 Hindi-speaking people in the Upper Assam between January 6 and 15 this year.

The government has in the past made a number of peace overtures to the ULFA. However, the peace initiatives could not go forward as the rebels insisted on sovereignty.

The group had earlier criticised Gogoi's rejection of its demand for sovereignty and dared the government to hold a 'plebiscite' on the issue of 'restoration of sovereignty to Assam -- the core demand of the group.
