NEW DELHI, Dec 17 � Alleging that Assam�s Republic Day Tableau was rejected on the ground that legendary Asom General Sukapha was a foreigner, the AGP has demanded an inquiry into the fiasco. The Ahom King was the theme of the Tableau.
Moving a Special Mention in Rajya Sabha, AGP MP Kumar Deepak Das said that the State Cultural Department had placed before the scrutiny committee a proposal for a tableau for next year�s Republic Day parade depicting Sukapha.
But, Das alleged, the Committee rejected the proposal, triggering an agitation in Assam. He further alleged that the Committee had remarked that Sukapha was a foreigner, which is an outright insult to the sentiment of the people of the State, he said, adding that the disregard of his legacy has hurt the people.
