DOOMDOOMA: All Assam Muttock Yuba Chatra Parishad (AAMYCP) demanded immediate halt of illegal coal mining in Ledo and Margherita areas in Tinsukia district. A memorandum to this effect was submitted by them to the Deputy Commissioner (DC), Tinsukia on Thursday.
The demand was placed days after SDO(Civil), Margherita Sub-division, issued an order under section 144 CrPC prohibiting entry of unauthorised persons and vehicles like excavators, dumpers etc into Lekhapani Reserved Forest, Tirap Reserved Forest and Tipong Reserved Forest under Lekhapani Forest Range of Digboi Forest Division.
The memorandum signed by president Krishna Kanta Kakati and the secretary Ujjwal Baruah stated that unabated smuggling of coal and illegal mining were going on under the very nose of the authority. This certainly goes against the declared policy of the present government for providing a clean administration and to put behind the bar those found to be indulged in corrupt practices, the memorandum further stated. The student body submitted a copy of the memorandum to the Superintendent of Police (SP), Tinsukia District, Abhijit Gurav as well.
Meanwhile, the Margherita regional Committee of Tai Ahom Yuva Parishad, All Assam Ahom Sabha, All Adivasi Students' Association (AASA), Tinsukia District Committee along with central committee of Chatra Mukti Sangram Samiti submitted a memorandum to the Chief Minister of Assam through the SDO(Civil), Margherita sub division on Wednesday urging his immediate intervention into the matter to stop all sorts of illegal coal mining and trafficking of coal in the whole of Tinsukia District in general and in Margherita sub division in particular.
