Asia Representative UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous People, Phoolman Chaudhury has urged the government to initiate process related to Article 244 (A) of the Constitution of India for the Karbis and other indigenous tribes settled in the autonomous hill district Karbi Anglong and West Karbi Anglong. 

He expressed this at a press meet organized at Karbi Anglong Sports Association Conference Hall in Diphu on February 22. Chaudhury was accompanied by Karbi Human Rights Watch convener Pankaj Teron and his press aide Hari Paudel.  Chaudhury said that UN Permanent Forum primarily focuses on six mandated areas i.e. education, social, development, environment, culture, and human rights. He also informed that the responsibility of the forum was to provide expert advice and recommend on issues related with indigenous people to the Economic and Social Council and to other organizations of the United Nations.
He said that the job of the Forum was to raise awareness, promote integration and coordinate the activities among the UN agencies. On the issues of Karbi Anglong, Chaudhury said that the government should seriously and honestly take up the issues of tribal people of Karbi Anglong districts and more importantly address autonomous state demand under 244 (A) of the Constitution of India which has been the decade long stipulation and aspiration of the people of the hills of Assam.
