ULFA chairman meets Paresh Baruah''s mother

Jeraigaon (Assam), Jan 11 (PTI) ULFA Chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa today visited the outfit''s elusive ''commander-in-chief'' Paresh Baruah''s mother Miliki Baruah, who insisted that her son and others be brought back for the peace talks.
"As all of you went out together on your struggle 30 years ago, now bring Paresh Baruah, Anup Chetia and others back by any means for the talks for a lasting solution to the Assam problem. Otherwise it will remain unsolved," octogenarian Miliki said.
Baruah is reportedly in China and is still insistent on discussing the outfit''s core issue of sovereignty.
Accompanied by the outfit''s idealogue Bhimkanta Buragohain, Rajkhowa came to Jeraigaon in Dibrugarh district and visited Baruah''s mother for the first time since his release on bail recently.
Rajkhowa''s wife Kaberi Kochari also accompanied him during his visit.
The ULFA leaders also visited the ancestral residence of general secretary Anup Chetia, now in a Dhaka jail, also in the same village.
Rajkhowa later told the media here that when the decision taking general council of the ULFA meets, it will discuss the release of all its jailed leaders and the cadres missing since Operation All Clear in Bhutan in December 2002.
