Former ULFA cadre are hopeful for unconditional peace talks between the banned underground outfit and government and that too without the participation of its absconding "commander-in-chief" Paresh Barua. "We are hopeful for the talks without any condition.
The peace talks are possible without Paresh Barua", Prakton ULFA Samannayrakshi Somity (Former ULFA Cadre Protection Committee) general secretary Rajen Medhi said.
"Peace in Assam is needed at any cost without any condition during the parleys with ULFA", Medhi said reporters after the organisation's central committee's general meeting in Barpeta.
The Samity's working president Dhanajoy Rabha also demanded that "all the police cases registered against the former insurgents to be dismissed". Rabha further demanded that "the former extremists be given employment as the government failed to establish them after their surrender forcing them to lead a miserable life".
