Rabha Accord Clause 5 �unconstitutional�: Govt

By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, Feb 14 � The State Government today reiterated its stand that the Clause 5 of the Rabha Accord signed between the Government and the All Rabha Students� Union (ARSU) on March 10, 1995 was unconstitutional, as the State Government has no jurisdiction to exclude the Rabha Hasong Autonomous Council (RHAC) areas from the purview of the 73rd amendment to the Constitution of India under Article 244.

Press Adviser to the Chief Minister Bharat Chandra Narah said in a statement that Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Wednesday while talking to the media about the Rabha Hasong Accord was in fact referring to Clause 5 of the Accord, which was not in accordance with the Indian Constitution.

On the other hand, it has been noted that both AGP and BJP, instead of supporting Constitutional and democratic process in the Rabha Hasong areas, were openly supporting the destructive forces and hindering the election process which is a dangerous step in a democratic country.

The Government with a view to give a legal sanctity to the Rabha Hasong Accord passed the Rabha Hasong Autonomous Council Act, 1995 and the same was finally given assent by Assam Governor on July 5, 1995.

The fact that the said Act was once again amended by the AGP-led Government on March 2, 2001 and the same clause never figured in the amendment thus clearly showing that the Act passed earlier without Clause 5 of the Rabha Hasong Accord was very much in tune with the Constitutional provisions of the Country.

The signatories of the Accord who were the leaders of Rabha Hasong community subsequently took oath of office under the same provisions of the Act three times after the enactment of the Accord also shows their full support to the dropping of Clause 5 of the Rabha Hasong Accord while passing it as an Act, said Narah.
