Guwahati: Amid reports of two Assam Police Personnel and youth joining the banned militant outfit ULFA-I came to the limelight, ULFA pro-talk faction, general secretary Anup Chetia on Saturday claimed that social media publicity by the outfit has inspired today’s youths to join the revolutionary group out of sentiment.
Chetia stated that the universal global organization (The United Nation) has failed to create a conducive environment for the young generations following which they are being diverted towards arms struggle.
Also, expressed displeasure over the delay in the peace talks between them and the Centre and sought the state chief minister’s intervention in the matter.
“The peace talks between the ULFA pro talk faction and the government has been on a halt for almost two years now. We are waiting with the hope that their issues will be addressed and resolved by the government as soon as possible,” said Anup Chetia.
Notably, two Assam police personnel identified as Koushik Gohain of Jeraigaon in Dibrugarh district and Numal Phukan of Sapekhati in Charaideo district including one Pinku Moran from Tinsukia reportedly joined the banned militant outfit ULFA-I recently.
According to sources, all three persons were reported missing since last December 31, 2021.
Koushik Gohain was deputed in the 2nd Assam police battalion in Makum, whereas, Numal Phukan was deputed at Silchar.
