    Militants Coming Back To Mainstream Must Help In Peace Building Process: CM

    644 cadres from eight militant groups ULFA-I, NDFB, NLFB, RNLF, KLO, NSLA, CPI- Maoist, ADF ceremonially laid down their arms today

    Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said that those youths who strayed into terrorism and extremist activities must be given an opportunity to come back to the mainstream society and rebuild their lives.

    “I welcome all members of extremist groups who have laid down their arms today to lead a normal life again and contribute meaningfully to the nation-building process through hard work and dedication. It will inspire other such militant organisation members to come back to mainstream society,” Sonowal said while attending the arms laying down programme of militant outfit members at a programme held at GMCH auditorium in Guwahati on January 23rd, 2020.

    It is to be mentioned, 644 members from eight militants organisations laid down their arms. The members from organisations like United Liberation Front of Assam- Independent (ULFA-I), United Liberation Front of Bodoland (NDFB), Kamatapur Liberation Organisation (KLO), Rabha National Liberation Front (RNLF) among others surrendered their arms formally.

    Saying that building a terrorism-free Assam was one of the main commitments of the present state government, Chief Minister Sonowal urged the surrendered militants to dedicate themselves to the nation-building process and utilise their potential to bring a positive transformation in the society.

    “Peace is a prerequisite for ushering in development and the former militants must contribute towards sustaining peace and harmony in the society,” he said.

    Sonowal said that following Prime Minister Modi led central government’s Act East Policy initiatives, the state government has been undertaking steps to make Guwahati the gateway to South East Asia and Assam’s farmers have been able to export their produce to the markets of Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Dubai etc.

    He also urged the surrendered militants to come forward and take advantage of this positive environment to establish themselves in the society through hardwork and dedication. “The state government is always ready to help in their rehabilitation process,” he said.

    Saying that by deciding to give up arms the militant organisation members have shown their trust in the democratic process, Sonowal expressed optimism that this would encourage all law-abiding citizens to keep believing in democratic values and it would inspire the younger generations to strengthen the democratic foundation of the country. “Resolution of all problems is possible through discussion and people must keep their faith on the law of the land,” he said.
