Modi shouldn’t take credit for Chetia’s deportation: Assam CM

New Delhi, Nov 11 (IANS) Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should not take credit for ULFA leader Anup Chetia’s deportation from Bangladesh.

He said that it was he who continuously demanded the rebel leader’s extradition to help ongoing ULFA peace talks with the central and state governments.

“I do not think this (deportation of Chetia) is the success of Modi. It is because of the land bill and me. It is because of my persuasion and continuous demand to bring back the (ULFA) leader so that the peace talks between the government and the pro-talks faction of United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) could progress,” Gogoi told a TV news channel.

Gogoi said he would write to the central government with a request to hand over the ULFA leader to Assam.

Chetia is a key leader of the banned militant outfit ULFA.
