BTC Assembly takes up several issues during day-long session

By Correspondent

KOKRAJHAR, Aug 29 - A day-long summer session of the Bodoland Territorial Council Legislative Assembly (BTCLA) was held at the Assembly House at Bodofa Nwgwr here on Wednesday.

BTCLA Speaker Tridip Daimary read out the report of the Business Advisory Committee under rule 230 and the names of the members of the Panel of Chairman under Rule 9(1) of the Legislative Assembly.

Replying to a question raised by opposition MCLA Jyatirindra Brahma on the engagement of officers and staff on attachment or on deputation basis and the number of retired persons being engaged in the BTC Secretariat, BTC chief Hagrama Mohilary, who is also in charge of the Personnel department, said that at present eight officers deputed to the BTC Secretariat by the State government and 16 retired persons on contractual basis were being engaged as per government rules.

Responding to MCLA Nirmal Kumar Brahma�s question as to why the Revenue department has not yet levied the �Touzi Bahira� revenue from land occupiers, Land Revenue executive member Alindra Moshahary said that �Touzi Bahira� revenue was not collected from the land occupiers because of the allotted status as per available documents.

Mohilary, responding to another query by opposition leader Rwngwra Narzary about the resettlement process of the flood-hit people, assured the House that the BTC will take all necessary steps to resettle the people who have lost everything in the floods, based on the report of the Deputy Commissioners who conducted surveys in their respective areas.

Mohilary also spoke on some major projects, including sports complexes at district headquarters, a film studio at Kokrajhar, helipads at Kokrajhar and Udalguri, and on roads and bridges being constructed in the area. A flood damage report was also submitted to the Assembly by members of an all-party delegation led by Speaker Tridip Daimary. A minute�s silence was also observed in the memory of the nation�s great leaders.
