Assam: Fate of ULFA-nominated body uncertain
K Anurag in Guwahati | July 06, 2008 17:05 IST
Sensing the frustration gripping a section of members of People's Consultative Group (PCG) over the stalled peace process between the banned United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) and the Centre, ULFA chairman Arabina Rajkhowa said that the outfit wouldn't object to any of the PCG members leaving the group according to their wish.
The PCG was nominated by the ULFA in September 2005 to do the spade work to facilitate direct talks between the ULFA leadership and the Centre.
It has nine members apart from noted litterateur Dr Mamoni Raisom Goswami who has been acting as a bridge between the PCG and the Government of India.
The continuing deadlock in the peace process because of the rigid postures adopted by the ULFA and government over pre-conditions on talks has precipitated frustration among the PCG members.
The leaders of the 'A' and 'C' companies of the outfit after calling unilateral truce have commented that the PCH has failed in achieving its objective . The government too has made it clear that it was no longer interested in talking with the PCG and will sit for dialogue only with top leaders of the ULFA.
