ISF on Hunger strike

Demanding immediate Bifurcation of North Cachar Hills district into two Autonomous Districts under 3(c) of Article 244(2) of the Sixth Schedule to the Constitution of India, the Indigenous Students’ Forum is observing hunger strike in front the Office of the Deputy Commissioner, Dima Hasao District from 9.00 am today (Thursday) to 5 pm on Friday.

It is learnt that the Govt of Assam had constituted a Group of Ministers to look into the demand for bifurcation of the N C Hills District by the indigenous People’s Forum on 16th July 2010. However, without having a single talk with the IPF, the group had to be dissolved again with the emergence of the Assam Assembly election in April 2011. And after the formation of new Govt. the group has yet to be set up.

They also threatened the Government to resort to more agitation programme if the government fails to solve their demand immediately.
