AAASU president Brij Lal Panika and secretary Dharam Raj Gowda said that if their existence would be in danger if the Scheduled Tribe status is not provided to them at the earliest.

They also added that their population is more than 80 lakhs in Assam and contributed in every sector of society for the upliftment of state but they are still being neglected by the government in regard to their demand.
