UPDS Accord: Then and Tomorrow

December 21, 2011

-Nong-E Terang

The United Democratic Solidarity (UPDS), Karbi insurgent organization had signed so called peace ‘accord’ with Assam and Central Government on 25th of November, 2011 after much drama and speculation. After the Memorandum of Settlement (MoS) is signed it is agreed that election to the present council will be held under state election commission, an amount of Rs. 350 crore (Rs. 70 crore per year) will be given as special economic aid.

But one is tempted to ask – is this all? Is the amount of Rs. 350 crore equal to the amount or rather less than that extorted by the UPDS all those years as an outlaw organisation? KADCC president Mr. Sum Ronghang is very much right in saying that after much violence and bloodshed the UPDS’s only demand was to change the name of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) to Karbi Anglong Autonomous Territorial Council (KAATC).

But to begin with, insurgent organizations in Karbi Anglong are the creation of the Congress Party. Their mind was set on creating trouble in peaceful Karbi Anglong district because it was unsuccessful in winning electoral battle against the then Autonomous State Demand Committee (ASDC). After insurgency started in Karbi Anglong mis-propaganda is carried out as to the purpose of the insurgency and it was campaigned that: For the cause of Autonomous State and supported by ASDC. In the hills of Karbi Anglong, ASDC supporters joined the insurgent organisations in droves. Many of them were dismayed after they came to know that the trouble makers were Congress supports, but it was too late, they were already wanted by the police and security forces.

Now, anti Congress tune humming UPDS is nothing but part of a game plan initiated by the Congress more than 15 years ago to defeat the ASDC. Now the ASDC will bother the Congress no more. What with the ASDC leadership funded and hijacked by the Congress there is nothing left of it. The once solid CPI(ML) in Karbi Anglong is openly split between Robi Kumar Phangcho and Chandra Kanta Terang camps.

Political machanisation is an art of politics but incorporating violence, nepotism, corruption, exploitation and destruction of demography is an art mastered by the Congress. This is going to raise further repercussions in the near future in a continuous manner. This is what the Congress leadership wanted, they will keep exploiting the situation to be in the seat of power.

Presently; what is worrying and facing a bleak future is the cadres of UPDS. A show of laying down arms will be performed on December 14, 2011 at Karbi Anglong Sports Association (KASA), Diphu. Most of the small arms will be kept by the UPDS cadres. Latter this will be used to extort, intimidate and for other unlawful activities. Also, former UPDS cadres with illegal arms will come in handy to Congress leaders as their henchmen.

Most of the UPDS leadership will also join the Congress formally in the near future, as river water joins the sea and ocean one day from where they rise up as steam. The present ASDC leadership will vehemently deny the views expressed above as they are paid Congress workers. As soon as election comes they will barter away their votes for a bonus of cash with the Congress. In such a scenario it is very ironic that a powerful Congress minister like Hemanta Biswa Sarma had very recenty advised ASDC and PAPA leader Elwin Teron to stick to one party to get people’s love, but while saying this he very well knew that Mr. Teron is under Congress payroll!

The Boorish Game of Congress in Karbi Anglong

March 22, 2011

Nong-e Terang

The overall picture of Karbi Anglong in the coming assembly election will not be unexpected. Among the boorish strategy of the Congress, the most interesting to watch will be Bokajan and Diphu LA. In Bokajan the sitting MLA Jagat Sing Ingti of the ASDC is standing as an independent this time around. This ASDC MLA who voted for Congress in the last Rajya Sabha election saying “it’s for Autonomous State- Implementation of Art 244(A),” is expected to win this time too, as the Congress, along expected lines, fielded a weak candidate in the form of Klengdoon Ingti, a kid and a greenhorn and also the son of siting MP Mr. Biren Sing Ingti. This candidate without any organisational involvement will hardly get the votes of grassroot level .

Congress workers in Bokajan constituency whose sole qualification is – he is the son an MP. The big idea in Bokajan LA is – Congress can win, but will not let themselves win. They are offering the seat to Mr. Jagat Sing Ingti on a platter. This is being done so to counter anti-incumbency factor in Karbi Anglong and thus poor Mr. Klengdoon Ingti is made a sacrificial goat. However this ‘sacrificial goat’ may become something in the coming days in Karbi Anglong DCC if the Congress workers don’t protest much.

Now, the picture in Diphu LA. The HAD Minister Khorsing Ingti of the “Bangladesh routed fund” reciever fame in the NC Hills Council Development Fund Scam; who is contesting from Howraghat LA seat himself is sponsoring former IAS bureaucrat Mr. J.I. Kathar; who very recently retired as the principal secretary of BTC to counter sitting Congress MLA and parliamentary secretary Mr. Bidya Sing Ingleng. The patronage given by Minister Ingti to the retired IAS officer is an open secret now. In all this ‘secret’ politics among the Congress own, the Bodo votes are reportedly swinging towards Mr. Kathar. But, even in all this melee Mr. Ingleng is expected to win, albeit with a decrease margin from the previous election.  PAPA consensus candidate George Millick does not stand much of a chance and most of the voters expressed surprise at the choice of candidate.

If anyone is going to benefit from the infighting among the KADCC it is the BJP. The BJP candidate in Diphu LA seat is Mr. Padma Maibangsa, who have his native home in Tumpreng of Hamren Sub-division. This man having a family history of firm friendship with Karbis, may be the ‘surprise’ winner in Diphu LA.
Among the picture emerging in the last few days is a major threat to the congress in Hamren Sub-division of Karbi Anglong district. The pretigious seat of Baithalangso LA was formerly represented by former minister and former ASDC strongman Mr. Holiram Terang, who lost to sitting MLA Dr. Mansing Rongpi in 2006 assembly election due to infighting. The challenge is coming from the BJP candidate Mr. Arun Terang; who incidentally is a close relative of former Minister Holiram.

Arun Terang, who got upwards of 15,000 votes in last assembly election, 2006, is expected to get a bonanza of votes from the supporters of Holiram Terang. As for ASDC strongman Mr. Jotson Bey, who is standing as an independent this time will not be much of an actor worth watching, at the most he may come in at No. 3.

In Howraghat LA, sitting MLA and HAD Minister Khorsing Ingti will make a comfortable comeback. The most interesting drama that will unfold, once again, after election is the tussle that will ensue between Khorsing Ingti and Bidya Sing Ingleng for a cabinet berth at Dispur.

Amid all drama and high rhetoric of PAPA leaders just a few months before assembly elections they are now showing themselves to be weak the knees and acting as a B Team of the Congress. This is, to say the least- a very degrading act of the ASDC on whom once the Karbi people repose their faith on.

PAPA criticizes Congress

February 6, 2011

From a Correspondent

DIPHU, Feb 6: “The People’s Alliance for Peace Agreement (PAPA) is meant for peace in the hills districts of Assam and for this we must have to root out corruption and bring down prices. To achieve this we have to throw out the corrupt Congress regime,” said Sai Ding-eh, chairman, PAPA today. He was addressing as the chief guest in a public meeting at Bokajan town. He also charged the Congress with trying to tarnish the image of PAPA.

He further said that PAPA will strive to build a Karbi Anglong where people will leave in peace and harmony irrespective of their caste, creed or religion and work for the all round development of the district.

Addressing the meeting, Jagat Sing Engti, MLA said: “It is the Congress way of misleading the masses by saying those who came after 1951 will have to leave the district after signing of the peace accord.” He clarified that not 1951 but after 2011 too an Indian citizen will have the right to reside in the district even after the implementation of Article 244 (A) of the Constitution. The public meeting was presided over by Rajendra Rongpi, senior ASDC leader. The meeting was also graced by a host of ASDC and PAPA dignitaries including Elwin Teron, Ramsingh Tokbi, Roland Killing, Ram Teron and others.

Seba agrees to exam centre – Cheer for Karbi Anglong students

February 4, 2011

Guwahati, Feb. 3: Finally there is respite for matriculation students in two development blocks of Karbi Anglong district. Unlike their predecessors, they will not have to travel miles to take their examination at Nellie in neighbouring Morigaon district.

The Board of Secondary Education, Assam (Seba), has agreed to set up a matriculation examination centre at Ulukunchi in Karbi Anglong, provided the district administration makes adequate arrangements for security of the staff and transportation of confidential materials, including question papers.

The board conceded after Gauhati High Court yesterday pulled it up, asking why it had not set up a centre in the two development blocks of Amri and Chinthong for the past 15 years, forcing hundreds of students to travel four hours to sit for the examination at the nearest centre in Nellie.

The Seba today informed the division bench of the high court, comprising Chief Justice Madan Bhimrao Lokur and Justice Mutum Binoy Kumar Singh, that they would set up a common examination centre in Chinthong and Amri development blocks.

Advocate A.D. Choudhury, who is amicus curiae in the case, said the court had asked Seba to hold a meeting with the administration either tomorrow or on Saturday to finalise the modalities for setting up the centre and report to the court on February 7.

“The court asked the board to sort out the problems it is facing in setting up the exam centre in the meeting to be held at Diphu. The court has fixed February 7 as the next hearing of the case,” he added.Sources said the administration had informed Seba that it would take all possible steps for security during the exam. Seba officials will meet the headmasters of seven high schools in the two blocks at Nellie on Saturday to discuss the matter and take a final resolution the next day at a public meeting, also to be attended by gaonburahs (village headmen) and local organisations.

The matric or High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) examination 2011 will commence in the state on February 21. According to Seba guidelines, there must be at least 200 candidates for setting up a matric exam centre.

The Telegraph, in its October 7, 2010 edition, had highlighted how nearly 1,500 students of at least seven schools from Amri and Chinthong had been travelling 40km to 100km to sit for the examination in Nellie for more than a decade.

The students had approached Seba and the education department but the problem has not been solved till date. They even sent a petition to Union human resource development minister Kapil Sibal seeking his intervention but he did not respond.

Finally, Justice Lokur directed the registration of a suo moto PIL on the matter in December last after several students, under the banner of United Tribal Youth Forum, sent him a letter on December 17, seeking his intervention in setting up the examination centre in the district’s blocks.

Seba, which filed a petition as a respondent to the PIL, stated that the roads and bridges on the way to Amri block were in a deplorable condition and thus not safe for dispatching confidential examination materials.
