ULFA calls for Assam bandh on Independence Day

By Pti

Guwahati, Aug 11: The anti-talk faction of the ULFA has called Assam bandh on Aug 15 and asked the people to refrain from participating in the Independence Day celebrations.

In an e-mail sent to media, ULFA 'assistant information and publicity secretary' Arunuday Asom said, places where Independence Day celebrations are organised would be 'legitimate targets' for the outfit and asked the people to stay away from such spots. He, however, did not specify whether the bandh is for 12 hours or 24 hours.

Meanwhile, in a separate joint statement, seven militant outfits of the north east called for the customary boycott of the celebrations and general strike in the region on the day. The strike would be in force from 1 am to 5.30 pm in the entire region, ULFA, National Democratic Front of Bodoland, Kamtapur Liberation Organisation, Coordination Committee Manipur, Tripura Peoples Democratic Front, National Liberation Front of Tripura and Hynnewtrep National Liberation Council said in a statement.
