GUWAHATI, July 19 - The Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) on Monday said that the Legislative Council of the State should be formed solely with representatives from the ethnic communities.
It needs to be mentioned here that the Assam Assembly has unanimously passed a resolution in favour of a Legislative Council and to recommend the same to the Government of India.
The student body said that giving representation to the indigenous communities of the State is the demand of the time and pointed out that till date, there was no such system that honoured the expectations of the indigenous communities.
The AJYCP has since long been demanding implementation of the provisions of the Constitution to safeguard the interests of the indigenous communities including full autonomy for the State to meet the aspirations of the indigenous communities.
�The Legislative Council should not be formed for politicians,� said the AJYCP.
The AJYCP has decided to intensify its movement for full autonomy of the State and will submit memorandum to the Prime Minister on July 22 with signatures of the public.
�Only full autonomy can ensure that the indigenous communities of State enjoyed their rights,� said the AJYCP announcing that on July 27 all its district units will stage protest demonstrations.
