In the presence of IPTA’s Assam committee vice-president and litterateur Mulan Laskar, IPTA’s Nagaon commiitte general secretary Ratul Bora and social worker Ainul Haque Choudhaury, a 18-member strong committee has been formed.
Anam Hussain was selected as president and Basit Alom Choudhaury as secretary.
Five advisers were also being nominated.
