DIPHU, Dec 4: Autonomous State Demand Committee (ASDC) demanded that KAAC EM Ratan Teron should be removed from his current portfolio as Executive Member of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council in a press statement issued by ASDC Member, i/c publicity secretary through a press communiqué here today.
The statement said that the regional party is encouraged by the scope given by Ratan Teron, former president of BJP, East Karbi Anglong and EM, KAAC to sharpen their political attack on the BJP and that they are not influenced by anybody else.
“The recovery of Bijay Agarwal by police from the residence of Tapan Teron the younger brother of EM Raton Teron in Howraghat is the main thing. Whatever it maybe, the clarification given by Ratan Teron the fact is that it was him that recommended the name of Tapan Teron for membership of BJP party to the state high committee. Though the term of Shri Ratan Teron has ended as President of the party, he was actually removed because of his controversial issue. We have therefore reiterated our demand that Ratan Teron should be removed from his current portfolio as EM of KAAC,” the press statement concluded.
