Centres attitude discriminatory: ULFA
By A Staff Reporter Assam Tribune
GUWAHATI, May 16 The United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) today alleged that Government of India adopted a discriminatory attitude towards the people of Assam. The outfit also claimed that Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh had no right to represent Assam.
The outfit today released its mouthpiece Freedom to the media through e-mail and alleged that all Central Ministers reached Assam when non-Assamese speaking people were attacked. Their families were compensated and whole India mourned for them. But why same kind of sympathy was not displayed for the innocent masses of Assam, the ULFA questioned.
The ULFA is of the view that the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh had no right to represent Assam. The outfit said that anyone who does not represent the issue of freedom of Assam cannot be a representative of Assam. At the same time, the outfit said that persons like Matang Sinh, Mani Kumar Subba and Sviv Sambhu Ojha cannot be representatives of Assam.
Referring to the killing of Buddheswar Moran in Tinsukia district, the ULFA said that it was another incident of killing of an innocent person by the Indian Army and said that the people of Assam would be able to live peacefully only after the occupational forces are withdrawn from the State. The outfit said that though the Government of India agreed to pay compensation of Rs three lakh to the family of Moran, the life of an Assamese person couldnt be valued at that amount. The assurance of punishment to the guilty is totally false, as in the past also; such assurances remained on papers only, the outfit said. The outfit further alleged that the killing of Moran was not the only instance of killing of innocents by the Indian Army in the name of launching operations against the ULFA as in recent past also, several innocent youths were killed in fake encounters.
The ULFA alleged that the Government of India launched propaganda against organizations working for restoration of permanent peace in Assam. The outfit alleged that the Government, as a part of the propaganda, launched a smearing campaign against the peoples consultative group (PCG) and the Assam Chief Minister even went to the extent of claiming that the decision to form the PCG was not a unanimous decision of the ULFA, while, the Government of India also claimed that the ULFA was behind the attack on Bangladeshi leaders. However, the masses of Assam would never believe such propaganda of the Government of India, the ULFA asserted.
Meanwhile, the ULFA expressed concern at the recent group clashes in Doomdooma and called upon all sections of people to maintain peace. The outfit alleged that the clashes broke out because of a conspiracy hatched by the occupational forces.
