HAMREN, April 8: The All India Karbi Students' Union (AIKSU) visited the border areas of Karbi Anglong with galand.
AIKSU president Enush Timung said, "We have come to notice the horjan gaon bura and horjan Hojongpur village council have been issuing land-holding permits to several outsiders along the border area at Hajongpur village. The village council has also given land documents to those settlers in the areas which had to obtain these from the settlement office of the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council. Now those settlers in the area are involved directly or indirectly in sale of land to the illegal immigrants. Under the horjan area at Hajongpur village along the border of Karbi Anglong, TN Manen, chairman of the Bamboo and Betel nut Farming Society of harjan, has occupied more than 500 bighas of land in the me of the society. How did the society get such vast tract of land? How did the KAAC allow this without proper enquiry? The border areas of Karbi Anglong are being encroached directly or indirectly by outsider every day, even in the reserved forest land. But the KAAC and the forest officials have not taken this matter seriously."
The AIKSU has demanded the KAAC authority to conduct immediate enquiry into the matter as to how the Hojongpur village council got the land documents and authority to give permission for settlement of outsiders. It demanded immediate eviction of illegal encroachers under the reserve forest of Doldoli and Dhansiri. AIKSU also demanded that direct or indirect selling of land to the outsiders must be stopped.
