He said a section of politically motivated persons were trying to create confusion among the people with false allegations on tribal land rights in the region.
He said BTC was formed under sixth schedule of the constitution and the land rights is continuing as per the sixth schedule norms.
” No one can change the rules and regulations of land rights without amendment by the state as BTC has no power to change land rules”, he said adding that the Gauhati High Court had issued eviction notice against non protected class of people from tribal belts and blocks but the eviction is a state subject and BTC has no power over it and thus targeting BTC over eviction is completely exaggerated and politically motivated.
UPPL leader Narzary said peace had come in BTC and the council has been working for the people with temperative and innovative ideas where various welfare schemes have been launched. He said for welfare of students for pursuing higher studies Bodoland Super-50 has been launched for engineering and civil service aspirants and Gyan Swrang has been launched through which students are given Rs. 5000 each. He also said the present government had sanctioned at least 400 to 650 families for IAY houses in each VCDC across the BTC districts.
He has called upon the opposition leaders to work with constructive opposition and to come with innovative suggestions for reformation in the region.
