Amidst talk of the Assam government preparing for a dialogue with the United Liberation Front of Asom, its 'commander-in-chief' Paresh Barua on Wednesday warned of attacks on paramilitary forces and government establishments in the state on occasions such as Republic Day.
In an email message to a local TV channel, he said, "Government functions and celebrations (Independence Day, Republic Day, etc.) ... such occasions will be targets of our attacks and we ask all to keep away from them."
The hardliner, who is the only senior leader of ULFA at large after the arrest of the outfit's chairman Arabindo Rajkhowa, also warned intellectuals opposed to ULFA and policemen and 'informers' helping security forces.
