DIPHU, April 27: The aftermath of the recent elections in Diphu on Saturday took a contentious turn as Daniel Teron, the publicity secretary of the Autonomous State Demand Committee (ASDC), questioned the All Party Hills Leaders Conference (APHLC) led by JI Kathar, asking if they would demand re-polling following their defeat, akin to their actions after the last Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) election.

Speaking at a press conference held at the ASDC Central Committee office on Saturday, Teron criticised APHLC for failing to form a non-BJP alliance to counter the saffron party in the Lok Sabha election.

He further challenged whether APHLC, in the event of another defeat, would resort to demanding re-election, citing the peaceful conduct of the voting on April 26.

“Whether we win or lose elections, we will continue with the Autonomous State movement,” Teron asserted, highlighting the ASDC’s commitment to the implementation of Article 244(A) of the Indian Constitution.

He also emphasised ongoing issues such as land encroachments and intergovernmental policies, vowing to resume vigorous activism.

Teron also disclosed that during a recent meeting with the chief minister of Assam, the ASDC urged him not to subject Karbi Anglong and Dima Hasao to the Uniform Civil Code and Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), a request to which the CM reportedly acquiesced.
