Committed to implement Clause VI report: CM

Guwahati: Caught in a deep dilemma over the fate of the Clause VI committee recommendations for the last 5 months, the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) on Tuesday revealed it forcing Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal to break the silence.

Hours after the revelation, Sonowal said that Delhi and Dispur were committed to implementing the suggestions in letter and spirit to ensure constitutional protection to the genuine people.

CM admitted the delay in the process to implement the recommendation and blamed the nationwide COVID19 menace and flood fury.

But according to sources, the report has yet to reach Union home minister Amit Shah who has been reluctant to receive it and asked CM to receive it on his behalf in February.

Many organizations and parties have supported AASU for revealing the report. Panel chairman Justice (Retd) BK Sarma also did not oppose AASU’s revelation while other members were supportive of the student organization.
