Guwahati, Nov 3: At a time when the Assam government has been trying to start the process of talks with the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA), the hardliners in the outfit headed by the commander-in-chief, Paresh Barua have launched a fresh recruitment drive to increase the strength of ULFA.

Sources say though they are not able to recruit good members, but youths in small numbers are being recruited.

Further reports say the ULFA still has strong bases in Myanmar according to inputs available. At least 150 members of the outfit are staying in the camps in the neighbouring country with its senior leaders.

Despite repeated request from the public to remove them, both the Myanmar government and the Assam Rifles has failed to carry out operation to evict the camps of the ULFA rebel groups and now the militants are able to relocate the camps by taking advantage of the terrain.
