Influx of illegal migrants in Dhansiri sub-div on
>From Our Correspondent
GOLAGHAT, June 27 Suspected Bangladeshi nationals have been settling in the entire Assam-Nagaland border area under Dhansiri subdivision of Golaghat district.
These aliens come from Dhubri, Morabari, Dhing, Nagaon, Hojai areas in the night buses and begin to stay at A, B, and C sectors of Assam-Nagaland border. These suspected Bangladeshis are being sheltered by some people with vested interests.
The Naga people are involving these Bangladeshis in anti-social activities such as kidnapping, looting, collection of tax and threatening the local permanent people. The number of Bangladeshis now runs to several thousands.
Due to increase in the number of Bangladeshis in large numbers, the impact on socio-economic and political life of the people might get worse one day. Worse still, the very existence of the local people might get affected.
It may be mentioned here that a section of vested interests tried to enlist their names in voters list for political gain.
The conscious people demanded of the district administration of Golaghat to take proper steps immediately in the greater interest of the State and its people.
Illegal liquor: The illegal trade of liquor is increasing in several parts of Golaghat town and neighbouring villages, it is alleged by the conscious people of the town.
Country liquor is being sold in large quantities in small ghumtis.
The local people of both town and villages have been repeatedly urging the excise department for taking stern steps against the illegal liquor traders, but to no avail.
Dharna staged: Pranjal Dutta and Pankaj Nath, president and secretary of Golaghat Madhya Anchalik Students Union have alleged that the officers of the Golaghat central block development office, had been involved in corruption and created many problems for the people under the CBD and the union had launched dharna against the corrupt employees of the central Kottalguri block. The union had held a dharna programme were 500 students gathered.
The leaders of the GMASU had arranged a meeting also where the tea garden workers, local people also attended.
The students union demanded to the government to take stern measures against the corruptions of Mahmud Hassan and Lambit Bhuyan, a junior engineer and if the government failed to take stern actions against them, the union would resort to agitational programme.
