Vital clause to elude in Assam Acord talks

The All Assam Students Union is all set to hold its tripartite talks with Delhi and Dispur on April 25 to ensure a speedy implementation of the Assam Accord in letter and sound spirit.

But the main clause of the historic Accord is unlike to dominate the talks in the capital to be chaired by Union home minister Rajnath Singh in view of a set of petitions before the Supreme Court challenging 1971 as the cut off date to detect and deport the immigrants.

Barring this principal clause, the tripartite talks is set to discuss the measures to stop infiltration from across the Indo-Bangla border and constitutional safeguards for the indigenous lot.

AASU has already dispatched a delegation consisting of Dr Samujjal Bhattacharya, Basanta Deka, Dipankar Nath and Lurinjyoti Gogoi to participate in the talks.

The sudden initiatives to hold the talks assumes significance when the Supreme Court constituted bench is preparing to hear a set of petitions challenging 1971 as the cut off year to detect and deport the immigrants as agreed by the student body in the Assam Accord, 1985.
