Congress promises ULFA solution
Guwahati, Mar 20 (UNI) The Congress today promised to resolve the ULFA problem, barely 24 hours after the ULFA cautioned all political parties to stop using their name for seeking votes.
Addressing mediapersons here today, Congress, Asom unit, in-charge Digvijay Singh said his party would solve the ULFA problem if given another term in the office.
ULFA Chairman Aurobindo Rajkhowa, in an e-mail last night, said the Centre was not sincere in resolving their problems.
The e-mail said, ''Every political party loves using the ULFA tag. The Congress is also taking our name.'' Mr Singh, however, said, '' The main agenda in the election is development and our government had faired well in the past five years.'' '' Talk about GDP, agricultural productivity, infrastuctural development or overall law and order situation, the Congress government has done well in every sphere and hence the people will vote us back to power, '' he said.
The Congress also targeted the Badaruddin Ajmal-led Asom United Democratic Front (AUDF) and referred to them as 'fundamentalists'.
''I am confident that people will vote for us,'' he said.
Speaking about rebel Congress MP Golam Osmani, who is contesting as an independent candidate, Mr Singh said he should first resign from the party and Lok Sabha and then contest the elections.
