Former Union Home secretary G K Pillai on Friday dubbed proscribed United Liberation Front of Asom-Independent (ULFA-I) as an outdated rebel outfit.
“ULFA (I) is now ‘outdated’ and there is nothing new to discuss on the banned outfit,” Pillai told reporters here.
Pillai, who was here to join the four-day programme of All Bodo Students’ Union (ABSU)’s golden jubilee celebration at Batachipur in Dhekiajuli said the militant chief Paresh Baruah is also outdated and in the name of revolution the ‘so called’ ULFA (I) chief Paresh Baruah is just maintaining a network of criminals using some youths of the region with a misguided concept.
Pillai further mentioned that he was the mediator for several rounds of talks between ULFA (I) and Government of India and met their leaders in jail.
He further said the outfit is carrying out certain activities with the support of NSCN (K) in upper Assam but there will be no any fruition. He also said that the recent setting ablaze of a number of oil tankers in Upper Assam is a handiwork of NSCN (K).
Mentioning about the Naga Framework agreement, Dr Pillai further stated that it would take some more time for its finalisation.
He also suggested the government of India will establish BOPs along the Chino-India border areas for the solution to the unwanted conflicts that often takes place in border areas.
