The United Garo Autonomous Council Movement Committee (UGACMC) has called for 48-hour Assam bandh from Tuesday demanding a separate autonomous council for the Garos living in Assam. The bandh will remain effective from 5 am on January 28.

The bandh was announced by the UGACMC during a press conference on Monday. UGACMC reiterated its demand for creation of a separate autonomous council for the Garos in Assam.  “The Garo people of Assam have been receiving a step-motherly treatment since 1972 by the successive governments of Assam,” said chairman Alex K Sangma and general secretary Thengsil Sangma.
The UGACMC said a separate Garo Autonomous Council be created prior to the grant of Sixth Schedule status to the Rabha Hasong Autonomous Council for settling the long-pending issue of the Garos of Assam. Calling for Assam bandh on Tuesday, the UGACMC leaders threatened to intensify their stir over the creation of a separate Garo Autonomous Council in near future.
