He said that his Government has received encouraging signals from the militant outfit to hold peace talks.
Addressing a press conference, Gogoi said, "There must be an end to the mindless violence in the state. We are keeping our doors open for all of them. The top ULFA leaders including Paresh Barua must respond to the peoples' desire for peace."
When asked about ULFA Chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa expressing his willingness to come to the negotiating table, he said, "Signals (from the ULFA) are encouraging."
Asked whether Assam Government will offer safe passage to top ULFA leaders if they come for talks, Gogoi said, "I am for it."
