Haflong, Dec 24 (UNI) The Dimasa rebels in dialogue with the Assam government are now indicating of going back to the jungles even as the much-watched peace talks with the ULFA is yet to take off.

The Dima Halom Daogah (DHD), Dilip Nunisa faction, which had been in ceasefire with the government since January 2003, is growing impatient with the 'non-progress' of talks.

The current ceasefire comes up for review on December 31 next and the cadres of the outfit are raising doubts on the sincerity of the government in addressing their demands.

'Publicity secretary' of the outfit R S Dimasa said in a statement here that DHD (Nunisa faction) leaders and cadres were not in favour of extending the ceasefire for another term and has appealed to its chief Dilip Nunisa to revoke the agreement.

They alleged that the government was not interested in solving the Dimasa problems.

Nunisa, when asked about the possibility of non-extension of the ceasefire, said it would be decided by the cadres as the outfit believed in democratic principles and would be guided by the cadres' opinion.

The DHD (Nunisa) has about 1000 cadres in four designated camps.

The split faction of the outfit, DHD (Jewel faction) or Black Widow, is against any talks and has been carrying on an armed rebellion.
