While talking to media persons, KSA president Timung said, “We declare the KSA foundation day as ‘Students’ Day’. We would like to encourage our youth to excel in higher education in order to serve the people. We would like to reiterate to the Centre and state government for immediate implementation of Article 244 (A) of the Indian constitution for creation of an Autonomous State comprising the three hill districts of Assam.”
Timung commended the step of the state government to establish a state university at Khanduli in West Karbi Anglong for which 5,000 bighas of land have been allotted by the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC). But at the same time KSA wants the AUDC to be a full-fledged university.
The open session was attended by the Karbi Language Development Board chairman Longsing Teron, principal of Diphu B.Ed. College, Dr. Lipson Rongpi and others.
Likewise, the other two factions of KSA led by Simeon Ronghar and Jameson Timung also celebrated the day at separate venues.
