GUWAHATI :Kamal Raj Chhetri, National General Secretary of the International Human Rights Council, a UN-recognized organization, has written a letter to ULFA-I Commander-in-Chief Paresh Baruaexpressing the organization’s willingness to mediate between the organization and the government. The Human Rights Council is excited by the recent news of your decision and willingness to negotiate. A letter to Paresh Barua hon. Saying that the Human Rights Council believes “the decision to sit and negotiate” towards progress is very foundational. The letter said “the last 4 decades have been devastating and countless brave soldiers have sacrificed their lives from both sides to bring pain and sorrow.”
The letter says that unfortunately, innocent people also lost their lives in such struggles. So, we appeal to the Government of India under the Chairmanship of Paresh Barua, Commander-in-Chief, United Liberation Front of Assam-Independent (ULFA-I), Government of Assam under the Chairmanship of Hon’ble Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma. Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji came to a conclusion not only in Assam but also in the entire North-East and India by bringing peace and neutrality and end this long confrontation. The International Human Rights Council has urged Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to stop long waits for peace and neutrality for the country’s development. “We are confident that today’s action will have a meaningful outcome tomorrow,” the letter added. The IHRC is willing to act as an intermediary between the two sides if needed, as we see a lot of possibilities and a bright future in this dialogue.
