The Chief Minister of Assam has claimed that he has begun a dialogue with the
United Liberation Front of Assam(ULFA ), the separatist group in Assam . But he
said that they have not included the question of sovereignty.
The question of
peace negotiation with the government has come up after the arrest of the ULFA
Chairman Aravinda Rajkhoa and the government has also taken a proactive role
for peace negotiation. They are also looking into the possibility of releasing
arrested sick ULFA members. The arrested ULFA leader also held a meeting in the
prison to discuss the line of thoughts in peace negotiations.
