GUWAHATI, Nov 2: In his capacity as Assam State Jamiat Ulama president, MP Badruddin Ajmal today met Union Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas qvi at New Delhi on, what he said, large-scale harassment to genuine Indian citizens in the me of ‘D’ voters, detection of foreigners and the ongoing eviction operation in Assam. Ajmal told the Union minister that in Assam genuine Indians are being harassed in the me of ‘D’ voters, and he sought an end to such harassment. “All legal aid counseling should be made available in all Foreigners Tribuls. In case of suspected tiolities, all referring authorities like Border SPs should give adequate opportunities of hearing to the suspected persons before referring them to the Foreigners Tribuls,” he said, and added that the detention camps in Assam should be separated from jails and they should have all facilities in accordance with the Intertiol Human Rights Commission’s benchmark. Ajmal further said that encroachment upon government khas land in Assam has been a long-pending one as the previous governments did precious little to solve it. “In Assam, including Guwahati city, khas land and tribal land have been encroached upon by capitalists, top officials and land mafia. However, instead of evicting them, the government at Dispur is evicting poor people who have to encroach upon khas lands for the disappearance of sar areas they live in due to erosion,” Ajmal said, and added: “The eviction in the State should be conducted without any discrimition uniformly all over the State after formulating an all-acceptable policy.”
