Second round of ULFA-Centre talks held tomorrow.

ULFAGuwahati: The second round of talks between ULFA and the Centre will be held tomorrow in Delhi where ceasefire ground rules would be discussed, whereas government would choose on the lines the discussion would progress.

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi told reporters that “The ULFA-government meeting will decide on what lines the talks will be held and how the discussions will progress.”

According to the sources, the ULFA was unwilling to accept the term ”designated camps” and preferred that they be called ”nabanirman kendras”. Their number should also be raised from three in the state to nine, the ULFA demanded.

ULFA sources said the team would talk about the ceasefire ground rules and support the government to reciprocate the outfit’s unilateral ceasefire.

Gogoi said that “We are making it clear that as of today there will be no separate state as demanded by the KLNLF, the NDFB (National Democratic Front of Bodoland) and UPDS (United Peoples Democratic Front).”

A three-member ULFA team including its ”finance secretary” Chitrabon Hazarika, ”foreign secretary” Sashadhar Choudhury and ”deputy commander-in-chief” Raju Baruah left for Delhi during the day.
