Indira Goswami
Guwahati, Nov 29: Ulfa 'commander-in-chief' Paresh Baruah and newly-appointed 'chairman' Abhijit Bormon on Tuesday condoled the death of Jnanpith Award winning Assamese litterateur Indira Raisom Goswami.

"Goswami would be remembered in history for "correctly presenting Ulfa's goal, purpose and philosophy to government of India," Baruah and Bormon said in a statement.

"Baideu (Elder sister) has a special place in the heart of every Ulfa member and we will remember her at every step of our movement," they said.

As a mark of respect, they said, a condolence meeting would be held in every Ulfa unit today and discussions on Goswami's life and contributions to literature tomorrow.

Goswami had taken the initiative to be the peace facilitator between Ulfa and government following which the banned insurgent outfit had constituted People's Consultative Committee (PCG).

The committee has held three rounds of talks with the Centre with one of them being with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
