Talks with ULFA only after it lays down arms: Chidambaram

Home Minister P Chidambaram said the Centre will hold talks with banned Assam-based terror outfit ULFA only after it lays down arms.

Home Minister P Chidambaram on Wednesday said the Centre will hold talks with banned Assam-based terror outfit ULFA only after it lays down arms and warned that otherwise security forces will take “appropriate action”.

“We will hold talks with ULFA only after they lay down their arms. If the do not lay down their arms,the security forces will take appropriate action,” he told reporters in Srinagar.

His remarks reflect the government’s tough stance regarding the militant outfit which has been continuously engaged in subversive activities.

On January one,Chidambaram,during a visit to Assam,had said security forces would deal “decisively” with banned outfits in the North-East which threaten peace and integrity of India but felt talks could be held with ULFA if it gave up its sovereignty demand.
