Guwahati senior citizens� body calls for correct NRC

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 21 - The Guwahati Senior Citizens� Association in its meeting held here on Saturday urged the Government of Assam to complete the NRC correctly in order to safeguard the interest of the bona fide citizens of the State by thwarting the evil designs of the reactionary and anti-national forces, mainly the illegal migrants coming from Bangladesh.

The meeting held under the presidentship of DN Chakravartty also called upon the Government of Assam to initiate proper action so that foreigners and non-resident people would not be entitled to land holding in Assam.

The meeting was addressed by Parvati Barua, internationally known elephant tamer and trainer. She described special characteristics of elephants, which is the most intelligent land animal.

She said there are 5,500 elephants in Assam, of which about 1,200 are domesticated. In earlier times, when forest land was abundant, there was no clash between man and elephant. But, following the expansion of civilization and fast depletion of forest cover, elephants have been deprived of their own abode and forced to encroach upon human habitation, she said.

She stressed the need for preservation of forest to safeguard the existence of wild animals in general and elephants in particular.

Baneswar Khound, secretary of the Senior Citizens� Association, presented his monthly report. Dr Malati Barua, Uttam Barua, Bimal Kumar Hazarika, Labanya Gogoi and Anima Devi recited self-composed poems, while Moloya Bharali presented Goalpariya Sangeet.

SK Barua and DR Bhagawati also took part in the discussion.

The meeting also decided to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Association on August 27 inviting a few dignitaries as special guests.
