The outfit stated that it is very shameful and dishonor to demand Bharat Ratna for Dr Bhupen Hazarika.
‘We, ULFA, oppose the begging to Colonial Indian State for any reorganizations to Bhupen Hazarika. It would be a matter of proud if any country honors Bhupenda, so as a foreign country if Colonial Indian State too honors Bhupenda with their highest Civil Honor, then we will welcome it. Even so, getting honor by begging is against the character of Assamese Nation. .’- the outfit also added in the press release.
The outfit also appeals to not to indulge in cheap politics in the matter of Bhupen Hazarika.
