GUWAHATI: Militant-turned Member of Parliament (MP) Naba Sarania has made it known that the concept of ‘independent Assam’ which the ULFA has been fighting for does not have even ‘one per cent of its possibility’.
The former ULFA leader said this at the face-to-face programme with journalists of Dispur Press Club on Saturday. Taking a trip down the memory lane, Sarania said: “I did think for a social change in 1989 and left home for joining the ULFA. However, I was not a happy bunny during my days in the ULFA. There was an internal conflict between Paresh Baruah and Arabinda Rajkhowa. Paresh Baruah did tell us not to rely on what Arabinda Rajkhowa said. There was not even one per cent possibility of an independent Assam.”
Coming to politics, Sarania further said: “There’s no possibility of creation of a separate Bodoland State. I had to join politics due to invitation by the people. It was the Obodo Suraksha Mancha that helped me in this.”
