GUWAHATI: With the government wrapping up peace negotiations with armed groups in Nagaland, the pro-talk faction of the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) is hoping that there will be an early resolution to issues, as discussions between the ULFA and the Centre had started way back in 2011.

The pro-talks faction has sought protection of land rights for the indigenous people and submitted a charter of demands, including granting of Scheduled Tribe status to six communities — Moran, Motok, Chutia, Koch Rajbongshi, Tea tribes and Ahoms.

The Narendra Modi-led NDA government has constituted a high-powered committee to look into their demands.
