The word Assamese should not exist, because there is no community or tribe known as Assamese. Living in India we have only one citizenship i.e. 'Indian' and Assam is only demarcation of place or area and we do not have dual citizenship system in India to introduce a new term ASSAMESE as a state nationality... we are only Indians and we are known by our own tribe and race within India. STOP DIVIDING INDIA!!!!!!!! We do not need the term Assamese to claim for our rights, we can directly mention indigenous people as it is the proper way of safeguarding the endangered languages and cultures, do not make it complicated as many can be misguided latter, as our constitutional rights grunts us only Indian as a nationality. We have a strong historical background to proof our origin, it is totally baseless to say "Definition of Assamese is required as per clause 6 of Assam accord" only a lost tribe or an illegal immigrant will stick to it as they can't prove their origin. Assam is a state where people can not live with dignity without identity, and as we have grown strong from past decade they try to break our unity with all sorts of unacceptable definitions and conditions, please do not be the victims of those traitors.. We are what we are ~INDIANS~ Do not divide us!
