Hagrama backs ST status to six ethnic communities

By CORRESPONDENT

KOKRAJHAR, Feb 10 - BTC Chief Hagrama Mohilary claimed that BPF would not oppose the Centre�s decision to grant ST status to six ethnic communities of the state.

�We have no objection to grant of ST status to the six ethnic communities without disturbing other ethnic tribes,� he said on the sidelines of the 4th technical conference of the BPF at Kokrajhar here yesterday.

On the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill-2016, the BTC chief opined that the issue needs an amicable settlement with consultation between AASU and the Centre.

He, however, parried a question on being asked about showing black flag to the BJP leaders. �The issue (Citizenship Bill) requires an immediate solution,� he reiterated.

Replying to a question in the aftermath of the AGP�s decision to break away its alliance with the BJP, Mohilary said, �AGP-BPF alliance is still intact in the BTAD�.

In this context, he revealed that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the State is now on a growth trajectory on account of growth-oriented schemes taken up by the Government.
