By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 8 � Aranya Suraksha Samiti, Assam, an NGO, has urged the President of India to repeal the agreement with Bangladesh under which 21,000 bighas of Assam�s land are being handed over to Bangladesh.

The agreement was signed by the Prime Minister of India, the Chief Minister of Assam and the Prime Minister of Bangladesh on September 6 in Dhaka.

In a memorandum to the President, Aranya Suraksha Samiti secretary general Dr Hari Charan Das said that Assam would be affected by this agreement politically, socially, economically and emotionally, and hence it should be scrapped immediately.

�Under no circumstances should our motherland be affected by any other country�s undue demand. Our Government should protect our borders and respect the patriotic sentiment of the border people. We, the people of the North-east, are feeling very unfortunate, neglected and deprived by this treaty,� it said, and sought the President�s intervention in having the agreement repealed.
