    Paresh Barua admits blunder by Ulfa in Assam - Hindustan Times

    Admitting that his cadres had committed blunders on occasions because of lack of foresight and planning, United Liberation Front of Asom (Ulfa) chief of staff Paresh Barua has said there will be no more bombings in Assam in places where indigenous people live.

    "There will be no bombings in Assam and elsewhere where indigenous communities reside. We do admit the Ulfa has blundered earlier on a couple of occasions. And these have happened mainly as a result of the lack of foresight and planning by commanders," Barua told a reporter of the Guwahati-based Seven Sisters Post who had trekked to the jungled tracts along the Myanmar-China border to interview the leader.

    "We feel extremely resentful for actions that have led to death and injury to innocent people."

    Admitting to a tactical understanding with the Maoists in India, Barua said several top Maoist leaders had visited Ulfa camps in Bhutan in 1996 after which there have been many bilateral meetings followed by logistical and moral support to them.

    "Ulfa would be benefited if the Maoists are able to carry out an effective campaign against India," he added.

    Barua said he did not think the Maoist would be able to strike deep roots in Assam and there was a definite strategy in place.

    In December 2003, the Royal Bhutanese Army embarked on Operation All Clear to destroy the Ulfa camps and making its cadres flee the Himalayan kingdom.

    The outfit's next stronghold was in Bangladesh under the patronage of the Khaleda Zia government that ended in 2006. The pro-India Sheikh Hasina government arrested most top Ulfa leaders and handed them over to Indian authorities in 2008. Since then the outfit has steadily built up its stronghold in Myanmar and along the border with China allegedly with substantial Chinese help.

    Ulfa was formed in Sivasgar in 1979 with complete sovereignty and independence of Assam as its avowed goal. More than 12,000 people have lost their lives in Assam in the three-decade long insurgency. Another faction led by Arabinda Rajkhowa is engaged in peace talks with the government.

    Bangladeshis , watch your backs..:laugh:


    Seriously this is the last gasp of a man leading an ostracised organization and whose ego/financial interests are too large to let go of the fight and see the writing on the wall.

    Now that he is losing this core support, he has to project a 'human' face!

    Not to be believed.

    Just attempting a breathing space!

    This dog should be snuffed just like how extra strays are culled by municipality (sometimes). I would be the happiest if Assamese themselves lynch this terrorist. Enough of this. Commandos should start combing operations against these tiny bandit factions. The only way to stop them from running into Burma or China is to have BALLS and fence the effing border.

    Much easier, politically less costly but more effective plan will be to start claiming and supporting Tibet's independance my friend. Then those chinese ----ers will keep their dick to themselves

    30 years of blood on his hands, and this scumbag comes out to say sorry now. He runs a full fledged conglomerate with the powers that be in Bangladesh especially Ghyaas Hazorika (killed by armed forces),Abdur Rehman, Manzural Alam the godfathers of Gun Running in Bangladesh. And he has the gall to talk schmuck :taunt:.

    As Ray rightly said, he's trying to projects a human face, indigenous non-indegenous people be damned. His is a lost cause, the people are sensible and have long forsaken him. He kept trying to remain in the limelight using Mamoni Raisom Goswami, and ever since she died last year he is left without a PR expert who can draw attention to his ramblings.

    He too will be forgotten soon and will be relegated to the pages of history, good riddance

    So, he will continue bombing places where "indigenous communities" do not reside. That is what he is saying. What a big favour he is doing to all of us. :frusty:

    High time every inch of Indian borders were fenced. Every inch, with every country - whether Bangladesh, Pakistan, or Burma.

    He has sniffed Christ i.e. his end, hence the soft posture. Don't read too much into it.

    The terrain makes it impossible. There are forests, mountains, swamps, rivers/rivulets etc. which cannot be fenced.

    You are correct on that one. The border with Pakistan is the most watched/patrolled border. Border fencing along the Bangladeshi border has been almost 70% complete (maybe even more, maybe a little less), but for some areas where fencing is not possible. After the land (land-swap) agreements signed with Bangladesh some months ago, do expect a speedy fencing process.
