sulfa

SULFA, short for Surrendered ULFA, i.e. members of the United Liberation Front of Asom that surrendered to the government.

Beginning with 1990, the Government of India has attempted to wean away members of ULFA. In 1992 a large section of second rank leaders and members surrendered to government authorities. These former members were allowed to retain their weapons to defend themselves against their former colleagues and were offered bank loans without any liabilities. This loose group, now called SULFA, has become an important element in a situation of armed politics and business in Assam.
