    ‘Report on Clause 6 of Assam Accord still with Assam Govt’: Home Ministry in Parliament

    While campaigning for the 2016 election, BJP had promised the people of the state that they would protect their interests if voted to power

    GUWAHATI: Clearing all doubts on the status of the report on Clause 6 of the Assam Accord, the Centre informed the Parliament that the report continued to be in Dispur.

    Almost a year has passed since a high-level committee presented its report on Clause 6 of the Assam Accord to the state government, but that document has yet to reach the centre. The committee submitted its report in February 2020.

    “The high-level committee for implementation of Clause6 of the Assam Accord, headed by Justice (retd) BK Sharma, submitted its report to the Assam government. The recommendations are under examination,” G Kishan Reddy, Minister of State for Home Affairs, said in response to a written question.

    The centre’s response came at a time when the ruling BJP has been reiterating their commitment to safeguard the identity, culture, language and rights of the Assamese community and people of the state.

    While campaigning for the 2016 election, BJP had promised the people of the state that they would protect their interests if voted to power.

    The Centre had set up the committee to provide recommendations to implement Clause 6 of the Assam Accord. In September last year, the centre asked the state to engage legal and constitutional experts to examine the provisions of the report.
