Hurdle in ST status for 6 communities

 The move for ST status to six communities is set to hit a major road block with a circle of tribal organization leaders deciding to oppose it tooth and nail.

The Kokrajhar unit of the All Assam Tribal Sangha threatens to openly oppose the move saying that they won’t sit idle if the government endorses the demand.

The issue came up for discussion when the new executive body of the Kokrajhar unit of the organization met at the Serfanguri High School ground on Sunday.

 The decision to oppose the ST status to 6 communities was taken during the 3rd triennial conference of Kokrajhar district unit of the Sangha held at Serfanguri High School ground on Sunday.

The tribal body further discussed the core issues of the tribal communities and illegal encroachment in tribal belt and blocks by non tribal communities and suspected nationalities.
