The various speakers lamented that the UNESCO has declared Veda as “Intangible heritage of humanity” in 2003 and 2007 and has asked for its immediate protection, so that no further deteriorations could happen. But the Government of India has not yet taken initiative to protect Vedas. Through ages, only Brahmins are capable of protecting Vedas and Vedic culture generation wise with origil fervor and tone. And none could replace Brahmins in this regard. Appropriate measures for protection of spiritual, economic and social culture should therefore be extended to
Brahmins. It was decided to submit a memorandum to the Govt of India at New Delhi at an earliest detailing all features. To ascertain exact figure of population, a census of Brahmins are urged to be conducted without delay. The states Govt have been urged to provide Development Council for Brahmins, as have been provided to other ethnic groups.
The demands were also made to establish Vedic University in every state, to establish Parshuram Kund as ‘Dham” and to declare it as tourism site of the north-east India.
For successful holding of the Adhivesan, Binod Bharti, Arbind Pandey, Jayant Bhattacharyya, newly elected local councilors Smt Bharti Dubey, Smt Susmita
