All about Assam is everything you need to know about Assam and a bit about North East from the viewpoint of a Assamese person who likes to analyse current affairs, sports, books and culture of Assam.

Is there any real progress of Peace Talk from the side of ULFA

The Millitary operation is still on, but people of Assam finally hoping out of hope that this is time when some realistic progress regarding the peace process. The long time insurgency in Assam finally end up at a happy note. ULFA Chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa declared on behalf of ULFA that the outfit is ready for the Peace talk witout any pre-condition. (I think sovereignty is not the main issue now). Arabinda Rajkhowa has also expressed that Anup Chetia should be there by his side during the proposed Peace Talk with Central Govt. (But that too is not a condition!)

But what is stopping whom to start the peace process. Does  the process of negotiation has to proceed through many more hurdles or red-tapes for that matter?
Why in an age of Facebook and twitter, a letter from the ULFA Chairman or Assam govt takes too long to reach each others post box. Finally a word has come from P C Halder the arbitrator of Peace talk between govt and ULFA that ULFA Chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa has send an official letter to the Chief Minister of Assam Mr Tarun Gogoi. So? Will this letter  too take too long to reach the Chief Minister or the govt of India?

Long time has passed since Madam Mamoni raisom Goswami started the peace process by communicating between Govt and ULFA. But ULFA and their alliances perhaps did not have enough respect for the veteran Jnanpeeth Awardee, because during the so called communication process there were several bomblasts in Assam which clearly shown that ULFA was still devided in two parties, one is supporting Peace talk and the other still on the way to bring freedom to Assam.

Now at this point when apparentky no neighbouring countries are giving shelter to the outfit members(forget those who are dubious in their stand), United Liberation Front of Assam is left with no other way , but to start the peace process. At least that will save some honour for the original objective of the organisation. Otherwise, the sacrifice of those who have lost their precious lives in the hands of Millitaries in the name of freedom war against India  will go to the dust. Though a section of people in Assam is showing support to the ULFA chairman (a huge rally welcomed Mr Arabinda Rajkhowa while he entered his home district  sivasagar), they are mostly driven by emotion, because most of them are not aware that ULFA is still banned by Central govt.
