They demanded solutions to educational issues plaguing Karbi Anglong and West Karbi Anglong districts.

ASDC general secretary Jotson Bey, KSA president Jemson Timung, ASDC Youth Front president Premson Bey, and KNCA president Maikon Rongpharpi led the sit-in-demonstration.

The memorandum highlighted that successive state governments have not allocated sufficient funds to improve the education standards in Karbi Anglong and West Karbi Anglong districts.

Consequently, educational institutions face severe shortages of teachers and classrooms.

It further noted that institutions like Diphu BEd College and others have been excluded from provincialisation schemes for the past twenty-five years, causing significant issues.

The memorandum urged the minister to take immediate steps, including provincialising non-provincialised colleges and ensuring an adequate number of teachers and classrooms.

They emphasised the need to exclude LP and ME schools from amalgamation policies and advocated for local autonomy in educational governance up to the higher secondary level.

Additionally, they demanded the establishment of examination centers for NET, NEET, and CUET at Assam University Diphu campus.
