Guwahati: The banned militant outfit ULFA (Independent) chief Paresh Baruah on Thursday said that the ‘sovereignty’ of Asom will never be compromised and the fight for it would continue.

The statement came at a time when the outfit has extended its unilateral ceasefire for another three months few days back.

The militant supremo in an email statement to media said, “I would like the Indian public to know that historically Asom was never a part of India. Asom was a Nation beaming with pride and Sovereignty, which was later colonized by foreign invaders. This is a legitimate and a historically correct fact which needs to be brought into the limelight.”

He added, “The 42 year old struggle for Independence is still continuing to restore Asom to its former glory. In addition, the sovereignty of Asom will never be compromised in the year to come.”

Welcoming the outfit’s ceasefire extension, state chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that a middle path has to be found to bring ULFA-I to peace talks.

On Thursday, Sarma also tweeted: “No Chief Minister can discuss Sovereignty of India with anyone. This is non-negotiable. We all Indians, irrespective of our positions, are here to protect the sovereignty of India.”
