DIPHU, June 5 - A group of more than 24 organisations which are spearheading the demand for framing rules under Clause 2(7) of the Sixth Schedule to the Constitution of India, to conduct election in order to fill seats of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) according to provision mentioned in paragraphs 1. 2. 2 (7) and 20 of the Sixth Schedule to the Constitution of India, has asked the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council to respond to the Gauhati High Court order pertaining to a PIL filed by the joint organisations.
The above information was made available to the KAAC CEM Tuliram Ronghang on Wednesday through a letter signed by the adviser of the faction JI Kathar, convener Ratan Terang, Rajesh Tisso, Semson Teron and members Angtong Engti and Hemphu Engti.
The organisations claim that the matter has been conveyed to the standing counsel of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council by the Division Bench, therefore the Council should carry out the order of the high court to this effect. The leaders of the organisations have also asked the Council authority to allow them to participate actively in formulation of Acts and rules for conduct of election to the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council.
It may be mentioned here that since 1952, the voters� list for conducting election to the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council was prepared by the Election Wing of the Deputy Commissioner�s office as per rules of the constitution of the Council. But the new demand for preparing voters� list to conduct election to the Council authority to fill seats of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council has created confusion among a large section of the voters about the actual objective behind the demand.
