Centre warns of strict action against ULFA

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Apr 8: On Tuesday, Apr, Union Home Minster, P Chidambaram refused to hold any discussions with the United Front of Asom (ULFA) and alleged its hand in the Monday, Apr 6, Assam blasts.

P Chidambaram said that, "no quarter will be given and no quarter will be asked of the ULFA. It is a banned organisation and it will be fought by security forces."

Secretary of Border Management in the Home Ministry, Vinay Kumar called the period between Mar 16 and Apr 7 as a 'vulnerable period' for Assam for several years as these days were the so called ULFA Army day and ULFA Raising Day respectively. He added that the security forces were on high alert, but it is regretted that ULFA was able to strike.

On the same note P Chidambaram commented that inability to prevent the attacks must not be seen as the security forces' weakness.

He said, “Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) were planted in a dozen locations and they were detected by the security forces. But that does not make news. The Assam police have spread their net far and wide, and because of their vigil, a dozen attempts were thwarted. Apr 6's blasts do not mean the Assam police were negligent."
