Koch, tea tribes and Muttocks to boycott talk with Kyndiah

Three striking communities have rejected Union minister P R Kyndiah's offer for talks on December 18 in New Dehi saying it is only to buy more time to let the panchayat poll hold.

After the Koch Rajbanshis, the Muttocks and All Adivasi Students Association of Assam have rejected the offer. The Koch Rajbanshis have already made it plain and simple that they are not interested for ST status and instead vowed to seek separate Kamatapur.

The tea tribe students and the Muttocks too rejected it saying it is a delaying tactic being taken by the Centre in the instance of the Assam government in the run up to the panchayat polls. The Tai Ahomes, Chutiyas have yet to react it. Notably, the Union tribal affairs minister in his letter to the Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi invited the six striking communities for talks on December 18 in New Delhi.
