    Assam: PDCK, 6 other rebel outfits to lay down arms

    PDCK has submitted a memorandum addressed to Shah demanding a autonomous state for the Karbi tribal community.

    Guwahati: The People’s Democratic Council of Karbi Anglong (PDCK) and six other proscribed groups will lay down their arms on February 25 in Karbi Anglong, the day when Union home minister Amit Shah will likely arrive in the district.

    The PDCK has also declared a unilateral ceasefire since yesterday in the run-up to the surrender ceremony.

    Reportedly, PDCK chairman J K Lijang in a statement said that the organisation has decided to declare “unilateral cessation of hostilities to give impetus to resolve the vexed political conflicts among all stake holders”.

    Lijang also hoped the Centre would respond with “seriousness and sincerity” to arrive at an amicable political situation.

    In the meantime, the PDCK has submitted a memorandum addressed to Shah demanding a autonomous state for the Karbi tribal community claiming that is only “viable” solution towards harmonious co-existence between the hill tribes and the plain people.

    The government has also called on the United People’s Revolutionary Front (UPRF) and Dimasa National Liberation Front (DNLF) to lay down their arms.

    PDCK is active in Karbi Anglong, West Karbi nglong, Dima Hasao and some parts of Nagaon and Golaghat districts of Assam.

    Earlier in November last year, police arrested the general secretary of the outfit from Karbi Anglong district.

    Nongme Tungjang alias Sanjib Phangcho was arrested with arms from Thekerajan area under Bakalia police station in the hill district.
