�Govt doing nothing to check Naga encroachment�

By A correspondent

SIVASAGAR, Sept 5 � Addressing a press conference here recently, CPI national executive member Promode Gogoi said that the people of Assam living in the border areas are spending sleepless nights due to encroachment threats.

�The Assam Assembly in July, 2009 had admitted that Nagaland had encroached on 66,241 hectares of Assam�s land. But instead of playing a proactive role in solving the border dispute between Assam and Nagaland, the Tarun Gogoi Government has done nothing to stop Nagaland�s aggression,� said Gogoi and added that if such a situation is allowed to prevail, the day is not far off when the entire Golaghat district and large areas of Jorhat and Sivasagar will be encroached upon by the Nagas.

Expressing his resentment at the alleged failure of the Assam Government to protect its constitutional boundary, Gogoi said, �Such a serious illegal act has not taken place in any other States in the Union of India despite the fact that there are boundary disputes among many States of our Republic.�

Gogoi demanded protection of all the residents of Assam in the border areas. He also called for making public the agreement signed between the Governments of Assam and Nagaland in 1977.
