Naked protest in Diphu

In a bizarre show of shock and anger hundreds of Karbi youths representing 24 organization staged an unprecedented naked protest alleging lack of response to the demands they gave been raising for years.

The protectors thronged in hundreds in Diphu, put off their shirts and trousers and took out a huge procession across the district headquarter town leaving the authorities in a catch 22 situation.

Talking to Assam Times, the protestors said their demands ate old. But the government has not been responding to these at all.

“For the last several years we have been demanding an updated voter list. The current list has names of thousands of outsiders and non tribal people who have been enjoying the rights and privileges meant for us. Are not we left naked?,” said a protestor.
