Guwahati: The United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) has posted two Pro-China videos in its YouTube Channel signaling the chance of a proxy war by China in the coming days in the northeastern region of the country. The two videos were released in English and Assamese over the last two weeks.
This comes amidst the week-long stand-off between India and China after the two clashed at Galwan valley in June. In the videos, ULFA blames India for all the border clashes that have occurred between the two countries since 1962. Defending China, ULFA gives lengthy pro-China justification in these videos. The videos leave a sign of a proxy war by China in northeastern India using ULFA and the Naga insurgents, something they had refrained from since 1971.
However, the intelligence source going through these videos said that ULFA leader Paresh Baruah had to release these types of videos as he and a few other members of ULFA were currently residing in the Wa state of China-Myanmar border with the support of the Chinese administration. "It is obvious that Paresh Baruah will release such a video. Otherwise, they will be killed," said the source.
This also has to be viewed against the background of the law and order break down in Nagaland after Governor RN Ravi and Nagaland Government locked horns with each other. Earlier, the Governor had written a letter accusing the government of failing to control the law and order situation in the state, which the government denied.
