Mech-Kachari demands autonomous council

“The Mech-Kachari community has been suffering in identity crisis and afraid of losing their original culture, heritage and identity due to the rapid change of the socio-economic scenario of the state”. This reflected at a conference organized by Sivasagar District unit of Mech-Kachari Jatiya Parishad at Nazira.

The Mech-Kachari Jatiya Parishad Asom has also submitted a memorandum to the Chief Minister on July 14, where they included their demands of Autonomous Council, setting up of a Separate Mech-Kachari Battalion & full-fledged status of schedule tribes etc.

Mech-Kacharis are also found in large numbers in Mechi Anchal (District) in Nepal and they are Gorkhas as far as Nepal is concerned. They are called Meche as their dwelling place is alongside the Mechi River.Their customs are similar to the Bodo-Kacharis.

Mech Brothers Had lost whatever they have.Their language culture and identity. they speakes assamese language, they put assamese clothes, and their faith an assamese vaishnaism etc. so they sify should rectify themselves and give space to other kacharies people to embraced them without hesitating.

Its our right to get the autonomous council,but really very sad to hear that we mech people are forgetting our own culture.

Automonous council will certainly fulfil some aspirations of the Mech Kachari community.But a political system should not be the ultimate goal of an ethnic community. Because only financial grant from govt cannot help survive a community. we should not confine our hopes and aspirations to a particular system. Our aim should be far beyond a system where we can live with dignity and prosperity and without fear of losing identity.

I request the Indian and Assam govt. to give Mech kachari's automonous council. Because we have right to live our life in our own way.
