Assam panel submits Clause 6 report to top bureaucrat
GUWAHATI | FEB 20, 2020:
The committee formed by the Home Ministry to recommend norms in Clause 6 of the Assam Accord submitted its report to state chief secretary Sanjay Krishna on Wednesday, after failing to get an appointment from the Home Ministry. Some members opposed submission of report to the state government.
This clause of the Assam Accord, signed in 1985 after massive protests against illegal immigrants, aims at ensuring special constitutional safeguards to the indigenous people of Assam.
Panel chairman BK Sharma, former judge of the Gauhati High Court, told media that they had written three letters to the MHA stating that the report was ready and requested to let them know when it would like to receive it.
