By Correspondent

JORHAT, Oct 2 � A central committee team of the All Assam Students� Union visited the tense Assam-Nagaland border area under B, C and D sectors on September 30 and October 1 and took stock of the encroachment by Nagas in Assam land after the Nagaland Government sent a letter to the Government of Assam demanding about 65000 hectares of Assam land on September 19.

This was informed by Manoar Hussain, executive member of AASU�s central committee. He told this correspondent that the student body is going to hold a protest rally very soon to highlight the inaction of the Assam Government to stop encroachment in the inter-state bordering areas.

�On September 26 the taxi owners� union of Merapani received a letter from the administration of Wokha district of Nagaland stating that a taxi stand would be set up at Merapani soon in which the taxi owners would have to register themselves with an amount of Rs 500 each and pay Rs 10 per day as parking fee�, said Hussain. �Nagaland Government is also preparing to set up a cattle checkgate at Merapani soon,� he added.

The AASU team after visiting the whole area submitted a memorandum to the Golaghat Deputy Commissioner demanding adequate action without delay to stop the encroachment in the inter-state border areas. In the memorandum it was mentioned that according to the resolution of the meeting between Merapani Nagarik Mancha and Naga Ho Ho, both the states resolved to send away their military forces from the bordering areas. Accordingly Assam has sent off the whole troupe of Assam Battalion from Merapani. But Naga Government took away only three camps of Naga Armed Police from the area leaving two camps there. Now the government of the neighbouring state is going to keep those Naga Armed Police camps permanently there. AASU has demanded removal of these NAP camps from the area.
