Many had left revolutionary organization and live a life of a common man unable to bear the hardship and UNLF has always accepted and considered them as common people. However, if a revolutionary surrendered and started acting against the party and continue committing crimes to malign the image of the revolutionary organization then the party will not tolerate.
