    Ajay Tanti, Central Executive Member, All Assam Tea Tribal Students’ Association (AATTSA), Tezpur unit vice president Winston Chona, Rangapani unit organizing secretary Pralay yal and All Assam Adivasi Students’ Union Sonitpur unit GS Prahlad Tanti are among the few names that had joined the newly formed regional political party.
