AASU members protest Govt�s land ordinance

By Staff Correspondent

JORHAT, July 3 - AASU activists on Thursday staged a protest in front of Jorhat Deputy Commissioner�s office here against the Sarbananda Sonowal-led Government�s decision to bring an ordinance to allow agricultural land in Assam for setting-up industrial units.

The protesters burnt a copy of the State Cabinet�s meeting to bring in an ordinance in this regard.

The protestors, while shouting slogans against the Government, said that the proposed ordinance will be �very much� against the various indigenous tribes and groups of the State as it would lead to the local people losing their land rights to outsiders.

Assistant secretary of Jorhat district unit AASU Bijoy Shankar Bordoloi took potshots at the Government for adopting an �anti-indigenous people� policy by �forgetting� that the BJP during Assembly poll campaign in 2016 made promises safeguarding the rights and interests of the indigenous groups and communities.

He said that it was really �very strange�and unfortunate that a political party which made the poll plank on protecting jati, mati and bheti (community, land, home) came to power at Dispur is now doing all the opposite.

The president and general secretary of the Jorhat regional unit of AASU Arjunmoni Bhuyan and Partha Pratim Bora respectively too took part in the protest.

Four persons linked to spice factory found Covid-19 positive: Among five persons found positive for Covid-19 here on Thursday, four were linked to the spice factory and a bakery outlet positive cases detected on June 28 that did not have travel history.

Jorhat Deputy Commissioner Roshni A Korati on Thursday night informed that five people were found positive with one being a returnee from outside Assam while other four were locals.

A district administration source stated that four local positive cases included two of the three joint owners of the spice factory at Borpool area here.

Earlier on June 28 (Sunday), an owner of a bakery outlet at Tarajan locality here, who was also a partner of the said spice factory, along with three members of his family and a staff tested positive following which the outlet, residence of the bakery owner and spice factory were declared containment buildings.

The five persons found positive on Thursday were: Brijmohan Sharma, Gautam Ghosh, Hira Chauhan, Ajit Kispota (All four linked to earlier positive cases of spice factory) and Lachit Das (a returnee from Tamil Nadu who was under institutional quarantine).

The houses of the four patients linked to the spice factory were declared containment buildings by the district administration.

It may be mentioned here that on Wednesday another person linked to the spice factory was found positive.
