New Delhi – Assam has lost its identity, culture, and land due to the intrusion of Muslims from outside. Due to the mushroom growth in their population, encroachment has also increased. The BJP does not want the votes of ‘Miyans’ (Muslims) in Assam, so I do not go to them and they also do not approach me. The campaign to eradicate encroachment would continue said Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.
A debate was organised by India Today recently. Chief Minister Sarma participated in the debate and gave these statements. Bangladeshi intruders dominate 15 of the 33 Districts of Assam. The intruders have taken control of 5,548 bighas of land belonging to 26 Vaishnava Mathas. Along with this, 4 lakh hectares of forest land in the State has also been encroached upon. This area is 22% of the total forest land of the State. It has been revealed in a Government report that intruder settlements are forming villages after villages in these areas.
