Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has welcomed the United Liberation Front of Assam or ULFA-Independent (ULFA-I)’s decision to abstain from boycotting the Republic Day celebrations.
Taking to Twitter, CM Sarma wrote, “I welcome ULFA’s decision not to call a bandh and desist from any resistance during Republic Day. I take this opportunity to once again appeal to Shri Paresh Baruah to come forward for a meaningful discussion with Govt of India.”

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.
