“THE KARBI Dimasa tribes are leading a miserable life because of the conspiracy of certain foreign and terrorist agencies. Government must pay attention toward their welfare.”
Vanvasi Kalyan Parishad All India Association Secretary Gunwant Singh Kothari underlined this in a lecture on ‘Efforts for separation of tribes in North-Eastern region and conspiracy to highlight them as mutual opponents’ organised by Vanvasi Kalyan Parishad in Santosh Auditorium recently.
Gunwant Singh Kothari was the main speaker of the programme. He further detailed that certain terrorist agencies carried out massive killing and other such activities in the Karbiamlong Hills and North Kachar districts of Assam. These incidents caused rivalry between Karbi and Dimasa tribes living in the two districts.
The Parishad established peace committees in both the districts. Since then 60,000 tribal have been residing in 25 relief camps. The peace committee met the Chief Minister of Assam Tarun Gogoi and also held talks with Governor and Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil. Gunwant Singh mentioned that it has now become essential to track the power behind the incidents. He urged the government to take immediate steps in this direction.
Mayor Uma Shashi Sharma stated that the public must be aware of such activities in the country. The programme began with Vipin Gandhi’s song ‘Sanskriti sabki ek chirantan’. Ravi Ghuwalewala welcomed Gunwant Singh Kothari in the programme. Surendra Kumar Nuval conducted the programme. The programme concluded with ‘Shanti Path’.
