Guwahati, Apr 1 (UNI) Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today rejected the demand of 'sovereignty' raised by the banned United Liberation Front of Asom.

''The question of soveignity does not arise. We are all soverign citizens of India and the constitutional position is quite clear on the matter. The ULFA can raise any issue, that does not mean all the issues are open for negotiation,'' he said, while talking to newsmen today at the Guwahati Airport, on his way to addressing a campaign rally.

He expressed hope that ULFA would agree to sit for direct talks.

''You have a Prime Minister representing Asom and every effort would be taken to push the peace process in the state,'' Dr Singh added.

The ULFA had insisted that sovereignty demands should be included in the peace talk.
