GUWAHATI, June 15 - Leader of the Opposition in the Assam Legislative Assembly Debabrata Saikia has called upon Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal to immediately provide adequate security to environmentalist and RTI activist Rohit Choudhury and his family in view of death threats issued by people who are involved in illegal mining around the Kaziranga National Park and Tiger Reserve.

In a letter to the Chief Minister today, Saikia said that Choudhury�s activism led to the National Tiger Conservation Authority banning mining, quarrying and stone crushing activities in the �Kaziranga-Karbi Anglong Landscape� vide an order issued on April 10 this year.

�Choudhury was also pursuing cases in the Supreme Court and the National Green Tribunal for protection of the Kaziranga National Park from illegal activities and the death threats were intended to exert pressure for withdrawal of these cases,� Saikia said.

The Opposition leader said that the State government should not remain a silent spectator while a public-spirited citizen is being brazenly persecuted by anti-social elements. Saikia also asked the Chief Minister to take strict action against those involved in illegal mining.
