The Karbi Student Association (KSA) on Friday condemned the alleged illegal settlers and non-tribal people living in the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council. The student body expressed their sentiments on the issue while addressing the Press at the District Press Club of Karbi Anglong, DPCKA Office.
The student body has stated that they have received information about a very large number of people from the adjoining state of Nagaland and people of non-tribal stock settling within the jurisdiction of Borjan Circle and Silonijan Circle in Eastern Karbi Anglong Autonomous District.
They added that the information also revealed that more than a hundred Bighas of land have been transferred to the non-tribal people. Fearing clashes between the tribals and the non-tribals to have allegedly settled in the area, the KSA also made an appeal to the concerned authorities to ensure that the issue of illegal encroachments is resolved at the earliest.
"We also prefer to make our humble authority of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) retake the possession of the land allotted to non-tribal stock within the jurisdiction of Borjan Circle and Silonijan Circle within the strength of Section-3 of the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council Code Read with Act No.11 of 1959 (The Mikir Hills District [Transfer of Land Act, 1959])", said a spokesperson of the student body.
The Karbi Students' Association (KSA), Hills Progressive Youth Association (HPYA), Students' & Youth for Justice (SYJ) and Karbi Anglong Woman Justice Forum jointly cautioned the individual(s) of the afore-mentioned areas who are allegedly indulging in the "nefarious business" in connivance with the concerned land and revenue Department to stay away from such an acts.
