UBPO blames government for eviction of peasants in Sirsako
LAKHIMPUR: UBPO (United Bodo People’s Organization) has shown a serious reaction to the peasant eviction campaign in Silsako in the Kamlap (metro) district. The district administration on May 13 was severely depressed by performing a peasant eviction drive on suspicion of illegal settlers in Silsakobir (wetlands) near the Chanchar area on the VIP road. According to the district administration, Silsako Beer has been a favorite place for illegal settlers, and for many years the district administration has evacuated peasants on 100 meters of illegally occupied government land.
On this issue, President Manoranjan Basmatari of the UBPO Central Committee said, “The expulsion by the state government in Sirsako is unjustified to the sons of the soil. The indigenous people living in Sirsako are inhumane on rainy days. Exiled in an attitude. What was caused by this injustice government violated human rights. ”
President UBPO further stated that the state government has granted land rights to Denotified Tribes (ST) people in the state under the provisions of the 2006 Denotified Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Residents (Forest Rights Approval) Act. He said he had begun giving measures.
“The prime minister once said that Assam was the land of the tribesmen who were the sons of the soil. Even after the prime minister made such a statement, why did the Kamlap district administration inhumanely expel the tribesmen of Sirsako? Was it? “” Manoran Jambas Matari said.
Meanwhile, UBPO and BKWAC (Bodo Kachari Welfare Autonomous Council) distributed relief supplies to the exiled people of Silsako on Saturday. BKWAC executive members Anil Basumatari, Rajesh Chourky, UBPO Chairman Manoranjan Basumatari, and many other senior officials from the organization visited 126 families whose homes collapsed during the eviction of peasants on Saturday.
