By City correspondent

GUWAHATI, Nov 29 - A compendium of commentaries, documentations, historical facts and figures to justify the fact that the Gorkhas are an indigenous group in Assam, published by the Assam State Committee of the Bharatiya Gorkha Parisangh (BGP), was released on Saturday in an executive meeting here.

The Parisangh�s Assam spokesperson Nanda Kirati Dewan, who is also the president of the BGP�s youth wing, said, �It includes verified documents and authenticated facts with commentaries in line of a research paper compiled by the scholarly group towards justification of Gorkhas as an indigenous group of Assam which was undermined and left out from the MHA-constituted High-Level Committee on Assam Accord�s Clause 6 report.�

The compendium was released by the Assam Nepali Sahitya Sabha (ANSS) president Durga Khatiwada. Addressing the release function, Khatiwada appreciated the efforts of Bharatiya Gorkha Parisangh in empowering Gorkhas and educating generations and said that this document is another testimony to the BGP�s commitment for the community.
