The Assam conflict is an insurgency in the Assam state of India.

The conflict started in the 1970s. [2] It stems from tension between Assamese and Bengalis,[3] as well as groups with separatist aspirations.[4] Additionally, the state is rich in oil resources.[2] The conflict has resulted in flight of thousands of persons. [5]

Several organisations make up the insurgency, including the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA), Adivasi National Liberation Army, Karbi Longri N.C. Hills Liberation Front (KLNLF), National Democratic Front of Bodoland, and SULFA.[5] ULFA is perhaps the largest of these groups, and one of the oldest, being founded in 1979.[6] ULFA has or used to have links with Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence.[6] and has been active in the narcotics business.[6] It has also attacked Hindi-speaking migrant workers.[7].
