GUWAHATI: Kamatapur People's Front (KPF) welcomed the state government's Cabinet decision held on January 7, where it decided to recommend to the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, for providing constitutional status to Rabha Hasong Autonomous Council, Mising Autonomous Council, and Tiwa Autonomous Council. But expressed disappointment as Kamatapur Autonomous Council was not included in the list.
KPF working president Biswajit Ray said the Assam government constituted the Kamatapur Autonomous Council, but the council totally failed with development and progress in the social, economic, and cultural sectors of the area. So, KPF demanded to give more power to the autonomous council to ensure the real development and welfare in Kamatapur region. And for this, the Kamatapur Autonomous Council has to be included in the 6th Schedule of the Indian Constitution. KPF also demanded that the Kamatapur Autonomous Council be given constitutional status and that a proposal be submitted to the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, to provide constitutional status.
