JORABAT, Dec 5 - After several rounds of talks with the government, Amri Karbi organisations of Dimoria who were protesting against the Tiwa Autonomous Council (TAC) elections in Dimoria are now hopeful of a positive outcome.
The Amri Karbi Students� Union in a press statement said that the government has said that it may agree to their demand of not holding elections in six constituencies in the Dimoria region of Kamrup Metro district. The government has also said that it would work for the development and betterment of the community.
Elections will be held on December 17 in 36 constituencies under the TAC, out of which six are under Kamrup Metro district. It may be mentioned that the Amri Karbi bodies have been demanding cancellation of elections in the six constituencies of Kamrup Metro district.
The six Amri Karbi bodies including the AKSU had earlier taken up several protest programmes like blocking the NH-37, organising bike rallies, hunger strikes and much more. However, the protesting bodies have now halted their protest programmes after they sensed that something fruitful might result from their meetings with the government.
Meanwhile, several political parties have filed nominations and have also started campaigning in the Dimoria region, angering the AKSU. Irked over the ongoing poll campaigning, Amri-Karbi community members have warned of untoward consequences if this continues, saying that they won�t be responsible for those.
Talking to this correspondent, Dharmeshwar Teron, general secretary of AKSU warned of relaunching their protest, if the government fails to fulfil their demands.
