By The Assam Tribune

MUSHALPUR, Sept 7 - More than four months have elapsed since the second BTC election was held on April 9 last, but the five Government nominated members are yet to be selected to the BTC Assembly.

It is noteworthy that in addition to 40 elected members of Council Legislative Assembly, BTC, five members are nominated by the Governor of the State from different communities living in BTC who have no elected representatives to the council.

It is noteworthy that the monsoon session of the council was held without the representation of the nominated members. A number of communities and organisations such as Koch-Rajbongshis, Gorkhas, Saraniya Kacharies, Bengalis, Rabhas, Madahis as well as Asomiya Surakshya Mancha, Religious Minority Council and many others including defeated candidates of the BTC poll have demanded nomination to candidates from their communities or organisations but the dilly dallying in the process has dampened their spirits.

The Government has been urged to complete the process at the earliest in order to ensure proper representation of other communities for their development on an equal footing.
