Guwahati, Sept 17: Miliki Baruah, the ailing mother of ULFA's militant 'commander' Paresh Baruah, on Thursday declined offer of fincial assistance by the Assam government and urged Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi to spend the money on the flood-hit people. "I do not want the money. My condition is very bad and I am not going to live longer. The government should give the money to the flood-hit people of Assam or to some other people who are in need," Miliki Baruah told the media at a hospital in Dibrugarh district. Gogoi on Wednesday said his government would consider on humanitarian grounds if Paresh Baruah desires to see his ailing mother and extended a fincial assistance of Rs.1 lakh for her treatment. Miliki Baruah, 88, was admitted to a private hospital in Dibrugarh on Tuesday after she complained of palpitation and breathing trouble. She lives with one of her sons at her home at Chabua in Dibrugarh district. IANS
