ULFA attacks threatening Assamese investment prospects

At a time when Assam is seeking investments from various quarters to boost its economy, the banned United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) is trying to push the State in a backward direction.

Guwahati, May 22 : At a time when Assam is seeking investments from various quarters to boost its economy, the banned United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) is trying to push the State in a backward direction.

The ULFA's main target has been economic centres and the common people.

Hindi-speaking economic migrants who add value to the State's economy are being chiefly targeted.

In January this year, the ULFA killed over 60 migrants in different parts of Tinsukia, Dibrugarh and Sibsagar.

Analysts say ULFA activities, if allowed to continue, will deprive Assam of the benefits of globalisation.

"The ULFA is hurting the interests of the Assamese, who could have benefited from the force of globalisation. You have cheap man power available, a large unemployed class, globalisation would have benefited those classes," said Bibhu Prasad Routary, Research Fellow, Institute for Conflict Management.

The business community in Assam comprises mostly of non-Assamese who have been living in the State for over two generations.

"This has given a wrong impression to the business community," said Pratap Jagate, a businessman.

Another Assamese businessmen Dayanand said: "Business gets disturbed".

"Blasts disturb the whole atmosphere. In this condition, who will like to invest?," asked Om Prakash Agrawal, another businessman.

Last month, a North East business summit was held to boost investment in the North East region. Several industrial houses pledged investment in Assam and other states.
