A new high level committee to protect Assams heritage

03 January 2019 Current Affairs:

The Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi approved the setting up of a high-level committee for implementation of Clause 6 of the Assam Accord. It provides for constitutional, legislative and administrative safeguards to protect, preserve and promote the cultural, social, linguistic identity and heritage of Assam. It also recommended reserving Assembly seats for indigenous communities in the State.
This move is after the Home Minister Rajnath Singh assured Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal in May 2018 that a committee would be set up at the earliest in consultation with the State government.
The Cabinet approved several measures to fulfil the demands of the Bodo community. It approved the establishment of a Bodo Museum-cum-language and cultural study centre, modernisation of the existing AIR station and Doordarshan Kendra at Kokrajhar and naming a superfast train as Aronai Express.
Assam Accord:
The Assam Accord (1985) was a Memorandum of Settlement (MoS) signed between representatives of the Government of India and the leaders of the Assam Movement in New Delhi on 15 August 1985
A six-year agitation demanding identification and deportation of illegal immigrants was launched by the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) in 1979
It culminated with the signing of the Assam Accord
