Surrendered GNLA militants returns to jungle

Shillong, September 02: Aggrieved militants of the Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA), who had surrendered their arms to the state government, has return to the jungle.

Around 200 cadres had surrendered before the Government since last year and are facing hardships due to the apathy of the government.

Speaking to this website, a surrendered GNLA cadre said that he regretted for submitting his arms, since the government had abandoned them.

The government had initiated steps to provide package only to few surrendered GNLA cadres, while others were neglected, he alleged.

One among the surrendered cadre said: “We have been totally short-changed, marginalised and abandoned.”

He also added, “We are fed up with the present situation. Since nothing is done to end our sufferings, we are going back to the jungle with our guns.”

According to him, there were around 45 cadres who had already went back to the jungle to take up arms since the government didn’t provide the one-time financial package to sustain themselves and their family through trade or other activities.

It may be recalled, GNLA cadres had surrendered their weapons to the state government at different places since last two years and the number decreases after the death of the outfit C-In-C Sohan D Shira.
