|New KPLT body appeals for cooperation|
DIPHU, Nov 1 – A new central committee of the recently surrendered Karbi People’s Liberation Tigers (KPLT) was formed on Wednesday, said the chairman of the militant outfit, Bidisarpo Tungjang. He, however, did not disclose the location where the committee was formed.
Bidisarpo Tungjang, Klarbong Inghi, Jack Rongpi and Wanted Tokbi have been appointed as the chairman, general secretary, ‘C-in-C’ and ‘Deputy C-in-C.’ “Any social issue can be resolved through negotiations with the Government and we have given up the path of violence and will fight in a democratic way to resolve the problems of the Karbi community by coming overground,” Tungjang said. “We want permanent peace and a lasting political solution to the problems of the Karbi community in Karbi Anglong,” he added.
The new KPLT chairman appealed to all the socio-political, student and women’s organisations to work together for the all-round development of Karbi Anglong.
