ST Status: Adivasis give govt 15 day deadline

The Assam Adivasi organisations say they will intensify the agitation if the government fails to accord them schedule tribe status within 15days.

The leaders of the state’s tea community organisations including All Assam Adivasi Students Association (AASA), All Assam Tea Tribe Students Association (AATTSA), Assam Charh Mazdoor Sangstha, Assam Chah Janajati Yuba Santha along with the tea cell leaders of the political parties met in Dispur on Friday and decided this course of action.

The meeting asked the governments both in Dsipur and Delhi to clear their stands on the status so that they are not forced to take agitational path.

The speakers blamed it all on the state government for the mob violence saying it is nothing but a conspiracy to suppress the Adivasi voices of protest.

The meeting further appealed to the people to exercise restraint restore peace and normalcy everywhere in the state.
