Assam's tribal militancy era is over: CM Himanta Biswa Sarma

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma stated on Saturday that the age of tribal militancy in the state is gone, as all insurgent groups have approached the government for talks. Sarma also said that the ULFA(Idemand )'s for a discussion on sovereignty is a stumbling block, and that his administration is working to break the deadlock.

"Tribal militancy has come to an end. All violent organisations have expressed interest... ULFA is our final stumbling block (I). All other organisations, with the exception of them, have surrendered their weapons "he stated Sarma stated that civil society organisations and student organisations have played an important role in addressing the state's tribal militancy problem.

From his encounters with those who are directly or indirectly in contact with ULFA(I) commander Paresh Barua, the CM has learned that the militant leader favours a "negotiated solution." "'Sovereignty' is the stumbling hurdle. The ULFA(I) wants a dialogue on it, which we are unable to provide. "We're trying to break the impasse," Sarma added. The chief minister stated that 2022 is a year of optimism for him.

"The Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act will have certain beneficial aspects. We don't know how or when this will happen. However, I am optimistic " he said.
