Nitish Kumar for Centre-State co-ordination to check ULFA attacks in Assam

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has urged the Tarun Gogoi and Central Governments to take effective measures to check the attacks on the Hindi-speaking people in Assam.

Patna, May 17 : Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has urged the Tarun Gogoi and Central Governments to take effective measures to check the attacks on the Hindi-speaking people in Assam.

Nitish condemned the recent attacks on Hindi-speaking people in Assam, primarily hailing from Bihar, by the banned United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA).

The Bihar CM has called for a co-ordinated efforts by Gogoi and Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil to check the ongoing violence in Assam, official sources said today.

Nitish said that such violence infringes the right of an Indian citizen to settle in any part of India to earn livelihood.The condemnation comes in the wake of the killing of six Hindi-speaking people, allegedly by ULFA.

The rebel outfit has often targeted immigrant labourers from Bihar, whom they accuse of diluting the Assamese culture.

Earlier, ULFA had killed as many as 63 Hindi-speaking people in the Upper Assam between January 6 and 15 this year.

In the past, the government has made a number of peace overtures to the ULFA.

However, the peace initiatives could not go forward as the rebels insisted on sovereignty and dared the government to hold a 'plebiscite' on the issue of 'restoration of sovereignty to Assam -- the core demand of the group.
