ST talk with Kyndiah turns a flop show

The talks on ST status for six communication in New Delhi with P R Kyndiah has proved to be a meaningless one as baring a few dark horses, the leaders of all the six communication boycotting it on Tuesday.

The Ahomes were represented by Daya Krishna Gogoi, Naba Phukan and Ajoy Borgohain while the Koch Rajbanshis were represented by Congress leader Dr Durlabha Chamua.

Meanwhile, All Assam Tai Ahom Students Association has claimed that the Tai Ahom Council which participated in the talks with Union tribal development minister P R Kyndiah in New Delhi has no base in the state. Two of its leaders are servicemen while the remaining one is a worker of the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee.

All Assam Tai Students Association president Aswini Chetia said the Tai Ahom Council has no role in the agitation for schedule status. He said Daya Krishna Gogoi and Naba Phukan are government employees while Ajoy Borgohaion is an APCC member.

Union tribal development minister P R Kyndiah who once deceived the people with blatant lie should not have repeated it. According to the AATASU spokesman of Kamrup district Rajnish Chetia, no government should deceive any community.

It’s a trip to New Delhi hosted by the government in the name of participating the talks with PR Kyndiah although they are dark horse from not participating in the agitation on the streets. Now question have been raised will it bear any fruit of the talk with these leaders.
