Assam land being occupied by Meghalaya due to poor infrastructure and basic amenities

Garbhanga (Assam), Tue, 21 Feb 2012 ANI

Garbhanga (Assam), Feb.21 (ANI): Poor infrastructure and basic amenities has compelled sixteen villages in Assam to take help from the neighbouring state of Meghalaya.


Most of these Assamese villages are inhabited by the ethnic Karbi and Rabha tribes.


The villages, which are situated in the Garbhanga area near the Assam-Meghalaya border, don't have enough schools, roads, electricity and jobs.


A villager, Kobin Rohang, said that many areas of Assam have already been occupied by Meghalaya through a gradual assimilation process.


Meghalaya provides electricity to the villages. Since the last assembly elections in Assam, most of the legislators have seldom visited the people who voted for them.


There have been instances of Meghalaya taking over Assam's lands in the past, which led to internal strife.


The Assam Government's apathy towards locals living in peripheral border areas has resulted in a steadily and gradual loss of territories to its neighbouring states. (ANI)
