DIPHU, Dec 19: The Karbi Students Association (KSA) of Jameson Timung faction burned the effigy of Howraghat MLA and member of Autonomous Council (MAC), Darsing Ronghang in front of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) entrance gate here on Sunday demanding the return of the land of KSA office at Centre in Karbi Anglong.
KSA demands the cancellation of the land pattas acquired ‘illegally’ by MLA Ronghang and to return them to the genuine landowners. The KSA also protested the removal of the KSA flag from the branch office at Centre.
It may be mentioned here that the National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation (NHIDCL) is taking up four lane construction work between Domoka to Dimapur of NH-36 via Manja.
Publicity secretary of KSA, Moniram Teron speaking to media said, “MLA Ronghang has illegally captured the plot of land of Centre branch office of KSA along the NH-36 by preparing land patta in his name. The plot of land for the KSA branch office was a donation by a local donor. Ronghang has also captured other land and prepared pattas in his name.”
The KSA demands that the KSA office land should be returned. The land pattas possessed by Ronghang by capturing the land of others should compensate the genuine owners.
