While, talking to reporters at the protest programme, erstwhile KAAC EM Ashok  Teron said that the agitation was held against CAB, Uniform Civil Code and expression of their deep objections over the appointment process and the demand for 100 percent reservation for locals at the Diphu Medical College.

“Forget about 70 percent but local appointment of local candidates are less than 30 percent and our party demand that 100 percent of the seats in the non-technical category should be reserved for local candidates,” said Teron. Further, the Congress leader said their party demands that interview should be conducted by KAAC here.

The ex-EM also claimed that the powers of Sixth Schedule have never been surrendered during 14 years of Congress tenure and also during ASDC’s rule. Teron concluded his speech stating indigenous tribes would be wipe out if CAB is implemented and that the present CEM, EM and MACs have no moral rights to continue and therefore, step down from their seats.
