Assam government is considering not to oppose bail application by jailed ULFA ( United Front Of Asom) so that they can come out jail and facilitate the much anticipated/discussed talks. Also, it is reported that Anup Chetia, in jail in Bangladesh, is likely to be handed over to Indian government.
The Government already facilitated the release of ULFA vice chairman Pradeep Gogoi and central publicity secretary Mithinga Daimary by not opposing their bail application. It looks like, Assam government is following every laws in Indian constitution with ULFA leaders.
According to information available, in the first phase, the deputy commander in chief of the ULFA, Raju Baruah, adviser Bhimkanta Buragohain alias Mama and cultural secretary Pranati Deka may be released on bail and the other senior leaders can be released in a phased manner depending on the progress made in the efforts to start the process of talk with the militant outfit.
The jailed leaders of the ULFA, who are in favour of talks with the Government, are also reportedly in touch with some other members of the outfit in an attempt to persuade them to come back to join the peace process. The jailed leaders further informed the government that once they are out of jail, they would be able to persuade more members of the outfit to join the peace process. It may be mentioned here that the central publicity secretary of the ULFA, Mithinga Daimary recently commented that once the ULFA central committee takes a decision on the peace process, majority of the members of the outfit would abide by the decision.
