Guwahati, Jan 12 (Agencies): The ULFA wants a peaceful and negotiated solution to the 30-year-old conflict in Assam, its 'finance secretary' Chitrabon Hazarika, last of the group's central committee members to be freed on bail, said on Wednesday.

After his release from Guwahati Central Jail, Hazarika told waiting newsmen that he had discussions with the Centre's interlocutor P C Haldar while in jail.

Asked if ULFA 'commander-in-chief' Paresh Baruah will participate in the peace talks, Hazarika said since he himself was in jail he was unaware of it, but expressed confidence that the elusive leader will come forward.

Referring to the illegal influx from Bangladesh, Hazarika said special measures will have to be taken against infiltration.

Hazarika was caught by Bangladesh security forces in Dhaka along with ULFA 'chairman' Arabinda Rajkhowa and others on November 30, 2009 and subsequently lodged in the Guwahati Central Jail.

Earlier, ULFA central committee members Rajkhowa, 'vice chairman' Pradip Hazarika, 'deputy c-in-c' Raju Baruah, 'foreign secretary' Sashadhar Choudhury, besides Hazarika, Pranati Deka and 'central publicity secretary' Mithinga Daimary, ideologue Bhimkanta Buragohain, and the group's east zone in-charge Ramu Mech were released on bail.

'General secretary' Anup Chetia is in a Bangladesh jail.

Two other central committee members, Ashanta Baghphukan and Robin Neog were declared missing after the 2003 'Operation All Clear' in Bhutan against ULFA camps on its soil.

Another commander of the armed wing Jibon Moran is still absconding.
