At a time when the whole State is jubilant over the recent extradition of ULFA’s General Secretary Anup Chetia, a section of political observers in Assam have termed the initiative ‘a political tactics of the BJP’.
‘No doubt we all believe that the initiative will boost the ongoing peace talks with the pro-talk section of United Liberation Font of Asom (ULFA); besides the step will also help State BJP to strengthen their roots in the State, specially upper Assam,’ said a noted political observer of the State.
He further stated that after the massive debacle in the recent Bihar polls, BJP is now desperate to change the game in Assam which will go to polls early next year.
‘Due to his zeal for action and change for the betterment of the Assamese people, ULFA general secretary Golap Baruah alias Chetia has become a god-like figure for many people of the State,’ he further pointed out, adding, ‘Thus, his extradition may help State BJP to regain the trust of the common people which will definitely help the party in grabbing Dispur’.
It may be mentioned here that Assam police is also preparing to grill Chetia as soon as he arrives in Guwahati. Speaking on the issue, a senior Assam police official in condition of anonymity said, ‘Senior State police officials are now busy preparing questions for grilling Chetia as till date a large number of sensational cases against him are pending’
