Centre puts forward suggestions to Clause 6 panel

By Spl Correspondent

NEW DELHI, Jan 13 - The Centre on Monday put forward some suggestions to the high-level committee for implementation of Clause 6 of the Assam Accord.

A four-member delegation of the committee, headed by Justice (retd) Biplab Kumar Sharma, met Union Home Minister Amit Shah at his North Block office here this morning. The other three members of the committee were Prof Mrinal Miri, RC Bapatra Gohain and Subash Das.

Later, talking to newsmen, Justice Sharma said the Union Home Ministry has made a few suggestions to the committee, which have been duly recorded. The Assam government has already submitted its recommendations.

Justice Sharma said that a meeting of the full committee has been convened on January 16 when the Centre�s recommendations would be discussed.

He said the committee has already completed its job though some last minute work remains. Justice Sharma also clarified that they are not seeking any extension though there may be a delay of 10-15 days.

Meanwhile, the committee is yet to finalise the definition of Assamese people. �Finalisation of the definition of Assamese people is not a problem and it can be resolved,� Justice Sharma said.

Asked whether 1971 would be taken as a base year for the definition, the chairman of the committee said that 1971 is the cut-off date for detection and deportation of illegal migrants.
