MARGHERITA, March 15: All Adivasi Student Association of Assam (AASAA) Tinsukia district committee in collaboration with other regional committees of Tinsukia district on Wednesday staged dharna in front of the office of Tinsukia district deputy commissioner against major issues faced by the Adivasi community of Tinsukia district.
Albert Orea and Jarnel Minz both president and general secretary of All Adivasi student Association of Assam(AASAA) Tinsukia district committee said that after 75 years of our country’s independence Adivasi people are deprived, exploited and discriminated by any government which has been formed but it is very unfortunate that Adivasi community people are remembered during election period.
Jarnel Minz said that by taking the advantage of our people’s innocence many a times they fell of prey to human trafficking which we demand to Assam Tinsukia district deputy commissioner to take action against private tea company and brick kilns where Adivasi child labour are rampantly found, to interrogate the cases of migration workers to other states, to stop carrying workers in open vehicles to their work place, to make a safety visit to all tea garden to ensure safety in industial area and to visit tea garden schools and ensure education procedure at the earliest.
If Tinsukia district administration fails to fulfill our demands than we shall intensify strong agitation in Tinsukia very soon, said Albert Orea and Jarnel Minz.
A memorandum was given to Tinsukia district deputy commissioner by the members of AASAA Tinsukia district committee.
