GORESWAR. March 4 - An important meeting was held at Bhulajhar Bangalipara High School today under the aegis of All Assam Gurkha Students� Union (AAGSU) in collaboration with All BTC Region Gurkha Students� Union on the recent decision on land rights in BTAD and its repercussion on the Gurkha and other communities like Nath Jogi, Saotal etc.

The meeting was presided over by Prem Tamang, president of AAGSU and the purpose of the meet was explained by Rohit Dahal, secretary of BTC Region Gurkha Students� Union.

Addressing the gathering, Prem Tamang said that �we are not against any community, we are only fighting for our rights. History stands testimony that the Gurkhas are also indigenous people of Assam. But we are always at the receiving end of deprivation, both politically and economicaly. We will no longer sit silent if our Fundamental and Constitutional rights are infringed. We are never against of BTC Accord. We only demand our right over our land, which is a Fundamental Right.�

Addressing the meeting, Jon Kumar Chouhan, president of BTC Region Gurkha Students� Union said that the Gurkhas are mentioned as protected community in land rules of the 1886 Act under paragraph No. 10 in tribal belt and blocks. Unfortunately, the BTC authority has always tried to infringe upon the Fundamental Rights of the Gurkha community. He urged the BTC authority to clarify on their recent decision on land rights within 15 days, or else the Gurkha community will be compelled to start a strong movement against the issue for preservation of their Fundamental Rights.

Representatives from Kokrajhar, Chirang, Udalguri and Baksa districts were present at the largely-attended public meeting.
