    CM Sonowal reassures implementation of Clause 6

    Sonowal said, “The present State Government is committed to ensure implementation of clause 6 of the Assam Accord in letter and spirit. The State Government is taking sincere steps to make the State free from illegal foreigners.”

    GUWAHATI: Hours after All Assam Students’ Union’s (AASU) revelation of the Centre’s high-level committee’s confidential report on Tuesday, state’s chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal reassured that the government of Assam was committed to implement the Clause 6 of the Assam Accord.

    Sonowal said, “The present State Government is committed to ensure implementation of clause 6 of the Assam Accord in letter and spirit. The State Government is taking sincere steps to make the State free from illegal foreigners.”

    He alleged that certain political forces of the state do not wish the implementation of the Assam Accord and said, “The present State Government sincerely desires its implementation. We would not let the sacrifices of the martyrs of Assam movement to go in vain.”

    The chief minister stressed, “The Committee after extensively touring various parts of the State and interacting with various organizations, leading personalities, intellectuals and journalists etc. prepared a report and submitted this report on 25th of this year. Unfortunately since then corona virus pandemic continues to stall the day to day lives of people worldwide. As a result, nationwide lockdown was declared in the later part of March in India. The pandemic still continues,” the chief minister said.  

    The Chief Minister further said that even though the State government is battling against flood, erosion, landslides, storm, African swine fever, Baghjan gas well fire etc. along with COVID-19 today, the Government continues its efforts sincerely to implement clause 6 of the Accord. Simultaneously the Central government is also taking steps in this regard. Therefore, without giving a definite timeframe, disclosing the report of the committee is very unfortunate, the Chief Minister stated.

    However, political experts of the state observed that the chief minister was forced to make a public statement only after the AASU’s revelation. The experts also critically highlighted the state government’s silence over the Committee’s final report ever since its submission on February 25.
