DEMOW, Aug 31: Lalit Tanti, president, and Kamal Bhumij, general secretary of the All Adivasi Students Association of Assam (AASAA), Demow Regional Committee, submitted a memorandum to the chief minister through the Demow circle officer on Thursday. In the memorandum, they drew attention to the issue of the Governor’s Brevet. The AASAA had previously submitted memorandums to the government regarding this matter on multiple occasions.
The memorandum highlighted that in the Governor’s Brevet, the chief secretary IAS Mukesh Chandra Sahu of the State Valley Tribes and Other Backward Department had directed its implementation from May 1, 2022. The notification specified that caste certificates and the applicant’s genuine tribe/caste/sub-caste should be in their names, excluding membership in Tea Estate/former Tea Estate Samaj (Society).
However, despite the issuance of the notification, its implementation has not been realised until the present date. Within the memorandum, the AASAA Demow Regional Committee urged for the prompt enforcement of Governor’s instruction No. AD/BC/766/2022/18-A.
