KMSS demands probe into land scams

By STAFF Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 30 � The Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) today demanded an inquiry into the alleged multi-crore-rupee land scams involving people like Suresh Prithani, Kailash Lohia and others and warned that its agitation against these individuals, who have taken possession of agricultural and ceiling-surplus land illegally, would be intensified in the coming days.

The KMSS alleged that in violation of all legal and Constitutional norms, Suresh Prithani took possession of 280 bighas of agricultural land in North Guwahati by depriving Bodo and Muslim farmers.

Addressing media persons here, president of KMSS Akhil Gogoi alleged that the administrative machinery was in nexus with Prithani and it ensured that Prithani got the land at any cost.

�We demand of the Government that it takes back the land from Prithani, otherwise we will approach the Gauhati High Court and if necessary, the Supreme Court as well,� warned Akhil, while announcing that its movement against Prithani and others and for seeking land rights for the indigenous people would be intensified from the month of August.

Akhil said that the need of the hour was to rein in illegal land occupants like Prithani and the rest who were gaining hundreds of bighas of land with the support of government officials. It needs to be mentioned here that the KMSS has been agitating against Prithani, Lohia and the others since March this year. Members of the KMSS have protested before the business establishments of Prithani and Lohia located in the Ganeshguri and Fancy Bazar areas respectively.

In the month of August, the KMSS members will stage a token dharna before the office of the Deputy Commissioner, Kamrup (Rural) and in the heart of the capital city. In September, October and November, the KMSS will take out bicycle processions, foot marches, stage dharna programmes across the State and also gherao private residences of those government officials who had allegedly been hand in glove with the land mafia.

�Our movement will continue until the Government relents and formulates a progressive land policy that will be in favour of the indigenous and working class citizens,� said Akhil, adding that the members of the KMSS will exert pressure on the Government to conduct a comprehensive land survey and allot land to the landless.
