DIPHU, May 8 - �Kaziranga National Park Extension Protest Committee� , a recently-formed organisation will stage a protest rally at Bagori locality of Karbi Anglong on May 10 to protest against the move of government as per the direction of Supreme Court for inclusion of 10 km peripheral area around the Kaziranga National Park as eco-sensitive zone for giving space to the wild animals of the park for free movement.

The Supreme Court in its order passed on December 13, 2018 had ordered that 10 km area around 21 national parks and wildlife sanctuaries of the nation be built up as �eco-sensitive zones� for uninterrupted movement of the animals. The apex court clearly stated that there cannot be any construction sites, factories or any other manufacturing unit or thick population density at least up to 10 km from the national parks and wildlife sanctuaries. The apex court on April 13, this year banned all mining and construction activities within a 10-km radius surrounding the Kaziranga National Park forcing the district administration of Karbi Anglong, Nagaon and Golaghat to clamp Section 144 CrPC from April 27. Following the Supreme Court�s directive Karbi Anglong Deputy Commissioner Mukul Kumar Saikia formally banned mining activities in the area by an order on May 4.

Leaders and members of the KNPEPC held a crucial meeting at Bagori Sericulture IB on Monday to discuss the future course of action. A large section of the people from Duarbagori and Socheng Dhenta MAC constituencies of Karbi Anglong district were also present in the meeting.

�If the Supreme Court order is implemented, it will have an adverse impact on the people living in villages under Duarbagori and Socheng Dhenta MAC constituencies,� KNPEPC general secretary Mohen Bey said in the meeting, which was presided over by former executive member (EM) of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC), Benting Teron. The villages have vouched not to spare an inch of their land for allowing the eco-sensitive zone.

The meeting has agreed to move the Supreme Court against the ban order and stage a protest rally on May 10 at Bagori with the villagers of Socheng Dhenta and Duarbagori MAC constituencies. An awareness programme will also be conducted in every village to make the people aware about the decision.
