Gorkha Parisangha calls for land rights protection in BTR
GUWAHATI: The Bharatiya Gorkha Parisangha has called for protection of land rights of the Gorkha community in the Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR) in the same manner as they were safeguarded in the earlier Bodo Accords, both in the protected belt and blocks and in other areas of BTR.
The unanimous call was made at the two-day 20th National Council Meet of the Parisangha that concluded here on Sunday.
Representatives of 16 states, three zones, nine regions and several district committees participated in the meet and unanimously resolved to declare the Guwahati Declaration 2020.
In accordance with the Guwahati Declaration, the Parisangha decided to send a delegation to call on the Parliamentary Standing Committee looking into the 125th Sixth Schedule Amendment Bill and present its assertion in the matter of protection and land and constitutional rights living in those areas.
The Parisangha is keenly engaged with the Bill as a Stakeholder in various Sixth Schedule areas of the Northeast.
BGP further appealed to the Centre and the West Bengal government to bring a resolution on the long-pending demand of Gorkhaland with a permanent political solution.
Earlier, a 21-member National Committee of Bharatiya Gorkha Yuva Parisangha – the youth wing of BGP – was sworn in with Nanda Kirati Dewan from Assam as president.
