GUWAHATI, Sept 16 � The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) today submitted a memorandum to the Principal Secretary of the State�s Home Department on the issue of Assam-Nagaland border dispute.
An AGP delegation led by the party�s general secretary Pradip Hazarika, former MLA Binod Gowala and party spokesman Satyabrata Kalita, which submitted the memorandum to the Principal Secretary, Home of the State, told the Principal Secretary that the 1971 report of the KDK Sundaram Commission constituted by the Union Government, said it in a categorical manner that the claim of Nagaland over Doyang, Rengma, South Nambar, Karbi Anglong, North Cachar and Tiro Pahar was not justified.
This assertion of the Sundaram Commission was endorsed by the Shastri Commission constituted subsequently to examine the same issue, the delegation claimed. It demanded deployment of Assam Police and SSB in the Assam- Nagaland border areas instead of the CRPF personnel.
It further demanded revamp of the roads in the inter-State border areas and adequate compensation to the families which faced the brunt of the attacks launched by the Naga miscreants recently. The delegation demanded the rehabilitation of these families too.
It also demanded firm steps from the Assam Government to recover the State�s land encroached upon by the Naga miscreants in the inter-State border areas.
