BJP minister apologises to terrorist; Assam CM issues show cause notice over ULFA-I comments, say reports

Kishan is in trouble for apologising to Paresh Barua, chief of the United Liberation Front of Asom-Independent, or ULFA-I, a banned organisation.

A minister in the BJP government in Assam is in trouble for apologising to a terrorist. Assam's Tea Tribes and Employment Minister Sanjoy Kishan was issued a show-cause notice on May 28 by Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, as per news agency PTI.

Kishan is in trouble for apologising to Paresh Barua, chief of the United Liberation Front of Asom-Independent, or ULFA-I, a banned organisation. Kishan has been given 3 days to explain his apologetic comments.

The minister had called Barua a "liar", leading to threats from ULFA-I that it would ensure that Kishan is "boycotted" in Dibrugarh and Tinsukia districts. Subsequently, the minister told the media that he had no intention to "hurt" Barua, and he sought forgiveness if he did so unknowingly.

The ULFA-I then withdrew its boycott threat. The ULFA-I is currently observing a unilateral ceasefire which was declared soon after Sarma became CM.
