GUWAHATI, Nov 25: Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has said that the State Government has all along been pursuing with the Centre for repatriation of ULFA general secretary Anup Chetia and now since he has been repatriated, he should be associated with the ongoing peace talks between the Government and the pro-talk faction of the ULFA.

In a statement here on Wednesday, Gogoi said, “ULFA general secretary Anup Chetia is an important figure in the context of peace talks and State Government believes that he can play a decisive role in the ongoing peace process”.
