New Delhi, Nov 18 : The central government’s proposal to grant Scheduled Tribe status to six advanced and populous communities in Assam will destroy the existing tribes, the Coordination Committee of the Tribal Organisations of Assam said on Friday. Describing the move as detrimental to tribes and anti-tribal, the CCTOA said the granting of ST status to those communities, including Koch Rajbongshi and Tai-Ahom, will eliminate political representation of the existing STs from village councils up to the Lok Sabha.
