ULFA-centre peace talks hit deadlock

Guwahati:

As the protest against the proposed Citizenship Amendment BILL 2016 is intensifying in the State, the peace-talk between the pro-talk ULFA faction and the Government of India hit a deadlock after the former demanded to scrap the controversial Bill.

As per sources, at a time when the talks between the pro-talk faction and the centre was reaching to a crucial stage, the demand for scrapping the Citizenship Bill allegedly upset centre’s plan.

Pro-talk ULFA faction, led by its chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa, on May 21 held a meeting with Centre’s interlocutor AB Mathur in New Delhi. ULFA leader Anup Chetia and others were also present at the meeting.

Pro-talk ULFA leaders stated that though the demand for scrapping of the Bill was not part of the original charter of demands submitted to the Government of India, they have placed the fresh demand later. They also shared that rest of their demands have more or less been settled.
