Members of different political parties who included Akhil Gogoi also committed to endorsing the decision to be taken by the delegation led by the Speaker. This was affirmed by all the members at a meeting held later on at the conference hall of the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar presided over by Biswajit Daimary. He appreciated the members of the opposition standing united on the issue. Reserve Forests have to be protected by keeping them free from encroachment.
The members in one voice condemned the case filed at Vairengte Police Station by Mizoram against Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, dubbing it as 'quite unacceptable.' They demanded the withdrawal of the case against the Chief Minister. Parimal Suklabaidya, Minister of Forest etc, was also with the delegation.
Minister Atul Bora also visited Lailapur to gather firsthand knowledge of the sequence of events on July 26 when 6 Assam police jawans lost their lives and the critically injured SP Nimbalkar Vaibhav Chandrakanta had to be airlifted to Mumbai for better treatment on the request of his family members.
