This is what the Yankees call as a’Flying Pig moment‘. When a politician actually admits his mistake and even says sorry to boot.
The UPA government’s deplorable soft attitude towards terrorism has only lead to a spurt in terrorist activity all over the place by emboldening the terrorists. One cannot negotiate with Terrorists who refuse to disarm and instead use these generous “ceasefires” as a mere timeout to regroup and rearm for the next round.
NEW DELHI: Indirect talks with the separatist group United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) through the People’s Consultative Group (PCG) was an incorrect step, Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said on Monday.
“It was a wrong move by the central government to continue peace talk with the ULFA. They got their sweet time to regroup themselves and now they are again spreading terror,” said Gogoi while addressing a press conference on the 33rd National Games.
Gogoi said he was also to be blamed for the wrong step.
“I am also to be partly blamed for this process because the central government had taken me into confidence for the talks with the ULFA,” he said.
Yet it is hard to shake off the lingering suspicion that this “abject admission” at this time has got something to do with the fast approaching election season in states like UP whose migrant labourers suffered the brunt of ULFA’s ethnic cleansing brutality.
