Kaju Rajvanshi's picture

The Koch Rajvanshis have the legal right to demand a separate state according 2 the bond of '49, between Ind govt. & the King of Kamatapur. "Kamatapur will be constructed as a "C" catagorised state"- it was in the conditions of the bond. State administration is not showing any honour 2 the honourable High court also. Thats why AKRSU have taken the highest attempt for their legal and appropriate demand.
