JORABAT, March 15 - As part of its ongoing protest against the move to set up an Assam Rifles (AR) camp on agricultural cum tribal belt area at Sonapur, the Amri Karbi Students� Union (AKSU) today organised a public meeting here to discuss its upcoming plan of action to oppose the government�s move.
The meeting that was attended by over a thousand people, came up with a list of programmes that may have a negative upshot for the administration in taking forward their plan.
�We have planned a number of programmes that include a protest rally on March 27 and a railway track blockade on April 3. Various other programmes have been lined up, which will be more extreme in nature and create a very challenging situation for the administration,� Ramen Kathar, general secretary of AKSU said.
As informed by the AKSU members, people belonging to the Garo community have also extended their support to the indigenous people, opposing the government�s anti-indigenous move.
Today, a team of AKSU members visited Domorapathar village, the area earmarked for the AR camp, and got shocking information about a few instances of misappropriation of land.
A resident of the village alleged that a group of unscrupulous people have indulged in malpractices by mismanaging registration and transfer of land records to receive land acquisition money illegally.
Meanwhile, the student body has made it clear that no matter what, they won�t allow such military camps to be established there.
