UFLA-I

This was informed through a communique by ULFA-I commander-in-chief Paresh Baruah.

Baruah said the decision has been taken in consideration with the current Covid-19 scenario in the state.

It is to be noted that ULFA-I had refrained from issuing any bandh or boycott call during August 15 last year too.

The outlawed outfit has declared a ceasefire from May 15, 2021, which is being renewed at regular intervals. In the meantime, Indian authorities have stepped back from conducting any operations against ULFA-I.
