GUWAHATI, Aug 11 - The people of Assam have the right to know the details of the report of the committee constituted by the Union Home Ministry on implementation of Clause 6 of the Assam Accord, said the All Assam Students� Union today while making the report public.
The AASU was a part of the 14-member committee that had submitted its report to Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal five months back.
Addressing a press conference here, the AASU leadership said the decision to reveal the details of the document was taken after a long wait for a positive response from the government�s side. The student body, however, said that it had no idea about the present status of the committee�s report.
�People of Assam have the right to know about the contents of the report,� AASU chief advisor Samujjal Bhattacharya said.
Another member of the committee and senior advocate Nilay Dutta, who was also present in the press conference through digital platform, hailed the decision of AASU and lauded it for taking the recommendations of the committee to the common people of Assam.
�We apologise to the people of Assam for the prolonged delay in reaching out to them with the details of the report. We waited for very long for the Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Union Home Minister Amit Shah to respond to the recommendations of the committee. People deserve to know the contents of the report,� AASU president Dipanka Kumar Nath said.
