GUWAHATI, July 28 - The leader of the Opposition in the Assam Legislative Assembly Debabrata Saikia has urged Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal to hold discussion with the Centre to ensure that representatives of all tribes and communities of Assam are included in the committee constituted by the Union Home Ministry under the chairmanship of Justice (retired) Biplab Kumar Sarma for going into the matter of providing constitutional safeguards specified in Clause 6 of the Assam Accord.

Saikia, in a letter to the Chief Minister, pointed out that many of these tribes have been living in undivided Assam since pre-historic times, while the process of migration by groups such as the Tai-Ahoms and the religious minorities commenced in the 13th century.

�Therefore, it is desirable to allow representatives of all stake-holders to participate in deliberations regarding their own future,� stated Saikia, who is also the leader of the State Congress Legislature Party (CLP).

Saikia appealed to the Chief Minister to ensure that the committee is made more broad-based because that would assuage the sentiments of all tribes and communities of Assam and also make the recommendations of the committee acceptable to all.
