Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Wednesday has issued an advisory to the governments of Assam and neighbouring North-Eastern (NE) States to be on alert in the run-up to the Raising Day of the banned fundamentalist outfit United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) on April 7.
In an official release, MHA has said that anti-talk factions of ULFA might try to create blockades and law and order situations in the area as their leaders have directed their cadres to execute plans to create disturbances and disrupt normal life in the region.
So, MHA has advised to states to beef up tight security at sensitive locations such as oil installations, railway tracks and stations, bus terminus, markets and religious places to foil any attempt by the insurgents to disturb peace.
ULFA's pro-talk faction headed by 'chairman' Arabinda Rajkhowa has been engaged in peace talks with the government but the outfit's military chief Paresh Baruah is steadfastly opposed to any dialogue and vowed to continue their armed movement till their demands are met.
