This would have been next to impossible a few years ago, even ardent Ulfa
supporters must agree that the ulfa can no longer count on the "support"
forced thru intimidation. Even murder and mayhem on the streets ain't doing
the trick. Now, all they are left to is calling these protesters neela

GUWAHATI, May 31: With protests continuing against the ULFA in different
parts of the city since the recent bomb blast at Athgaon, Assam Public Works
(APW) activists today burnt the effigies of ULFA chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa
and its commander-in-chief Paresh Baruah near the Rabindra Bhavan here this
morning. Meanwhile, the ULFA has said that it 'was not worried over the
protests'. In an e-mail statement issued by Paresh Barua today, the rebel
group termed the protesters as 'blue jackals' who are carrying out
agitations under the direct diktat from the 'colonial rulers'.
On the other hand, the APW termed the two top ULFA leaders as the 'dreamers
of greater Bangladesh' and chanted slogans against the militant outfit and
its leaders. "People of Asom have now realized the sinister game plan of the
ULFA," said Ghanashyam Kalita, organizing secretary of the APW, while
talking to reporters.
He said the recent barbaric attacks on the common people have exposed the
real character of the militant outfit. The recent incidents of violence were
the reflection of the frustration gripping the ULFA, which is rapidly losing
its support base among the people. "This is the beginning of the end of the
ULFA," he said.
The APW leader said one cannot glorify the senseless killings of ordinary
citizens as revolution. The people of the State never support the demand for
the so-called independence of Asom made by the ULFA leaders, who maintain a
safe distance from the killing fields here, he added.
According to the APW sources, the activists of the organization have
organized protest rallies against ULFA-sponsored violence in various parts
of the State.
