New Delhi: The ongoing tripartite peace process among the pro-talk faction of ULFA, Assam government and the Centre is likely to see a new agreement being signed in six months, a senior ULFA leader said.
"Our peace process is going on very smoothly. Recently we have had nice talks with the central government and there are no differences as of now... we have mutually agreed on several issues. We are likely to see a solution in the next six months," Raju Baruah, a senior member of ULFA's pro-talk faction, told IANS.
Emphasising on the need to include deported ULFA leader Anup Chetia in the peace process, Raju Baruah, the former deputy commander-in-chief of the outfit, said Chetia would join the peace talks once his judicial custody is over.
Chetia was sent to 14 days' judicial custody by a special court in Guwahati. He will be produced in the court again on December 9.
Stating that the pro-talk faction of ULFA has also given a time frame to complete the peace talks within the time, Raju Baruah said: "We are almost sure that we will complete the peace talks in a very short duration."
