DHEMAJI, Feb 21: The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU), Dhemaji district unit, has called upon Prime Minister Narendra Modi to declare the deadline for implementation of Clause 6 of the Assam Accord during his Dhemaji visit tomorrow.
The AASU’s Dhemaji unit president Deepak Sarma informed that the union members will wave black flags at Dhemaji opposing the PM’s visit.
The student union functionaries said that the Assamese people seem to have been betrayed with regard to the implementation of the Clause 6 of the Assam Accord.
On July 16, 2019, the Narendra Modi-led Central government had constituted a 14-member high-powered committee to lay down recommendations to implement Clause 6. The high-level committee, headed by Justice (retd) Biplab Sharma, later submitted its report to Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on February 25, 2020.
However, the BJP-led governments at the Centre andin the State collectively failed to implement it, the AASU leaders alleged, and said that the governments are showing apathy towards ensuring legal safeguards for the indigenous people of Assam.
