Assam CM refutes media report that he is ready to discuss ULFA (I)’s sovereignty demand



Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has refuted that the media report that he is ready to discuss proscribe insurgent group ULFA (I)’s sovereignty demand.

Sarma while strongly rebutting the media report said that no Chief Minister can discuss the Sovereignty of India with anyone.

“I am aghast to see this news in @timesofindia. No Chief Minister can discuss Sovereignty of India with any one. This is non-negotiable. We all Indians, irrespective of our positions, are here to protect the sovereignty of India. I strongly refute the news report. This is FALSE,” Sarama said in a tweet on Thursday morning.

The TOI on Thursday reported that Chief Minister Sarma is ready to discuss ULFA (I)’s core demand of sovereignty.

“In a first for any Assam Chief Minister making a peace overture to a militant outfit, Himanta Biswa Sarma declared on Wednesday that the elephant in the room — Ulfa’s (I) “core demand of sovereignty” — would have to be addressed along the way,” the report said.
