Guwahati, Nov 30 (ANI): The surrendered ULFA cadres who are staying at the rehabilitation camp in Kalbari in Tamulpur subdivision of Baksa district in Assam fell that they have had a rebirth.
Now, they have no fear for their lives and do not have to hunt for their next meal.
They are learning various vocations. Some are learning driving and some others are trying to operate computers.
“One of us is learning computer and ten of us are taking training in driving. We are altogether eleven here,” said Nager Rabha, a cadre.
Nager Rabha added: “We are getting good training here. We are hopeful that with whatever training we are getting here, we will be able to lead a normal and better life in future.”
These cadres have plenty to say about their past life, about ULFA and its policies. They are still in a daze and trying to reconcile with the present reality. They are happy with this positive turn in their lives.
“Whatever we are learning here we want to apply those things when we return to the mainstream. In this way we hope we will go hand in hand with common people,” said Amit Das, another cadre.
In the last three months, more than 250 militants have come back to their homes.
Never before has there been such a mass exodus from ULFA on a such large scale in such a short span of time. (ANI)
