MLAs seek probe into sale of TE land

By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, March 14 - Alleging that tea companies in the State were selling garden land, three BJP MLAs today demanded a high-level probe into the matter.

Raising an instance from his constituency during the question hour at the Assembly today, BJP MLA from Tinsukia Sanjay Kishan wanted to know if the government was aware that many tea garden managements were allowing setting up of business establishments in their garden land.

BJP MLA from Lahowal Rituparna Barua said similar instances of garden managements selling the land leased to them have been reported from other parts of Dibrugarh and Tinsukia districts. He sought a high-level probe into the matter.

MLA Siddhartha Bhattacharyya also named a couple of tea gardens around Guwahati where similar incidents have reportedly taken place.

Industry Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary, however, insisted that gardens cannot sell their land that has been given to them on lease.
