We want plebiscite on sovereignty: Paresh Baruah

GUWAHATI, Dec 11: The United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) today urged the Government of India for a plebiscite to decide if the people of Assam want independence. “Talks, if any, have to be on the issue of Assam’s independence or sovereignty. If the Government cannot hold talks on the issue of sovereignty or independence, let there be a plebiscite on the issue,” ULFA ‘commander-in-chief’ Paresh Baruah said in an e-mail to The Sentinel today. The ULFA said that it was ready to hold peace talks if New Delhi discussed their core demand of sovereignty. “In the name of holding peace talks, the government has all along been staging dramas,” the ULFA statement said. “Our stand is very clear, we are not going to sit for talks if the issue of sovereignty is not discussed,” Baruah said.
