Mrinal Saikia targets Rockybul

Nagaon BJP leader Mrinal Saikia’s target now is none other than Rockybul Hussain. Saikia has accused the former forest minister of aiding and abetting the Nagaon Deputy Commissioner to mislead the court with wrong affidavit in the Gauhati High Court.

Addressing a press conference in Golaghat on Thursday, Saikia charged Hussain with trying to safeguard the interest of those who has been encroaching the Bandardubi, Deochar Sang and Palkhowa areas in Kaziranga. According to Saikia, Bandardubi, Deochar Sang and Palkhowa have been the animal corridors for decades. He strongly criticized the government for failing to evict the encroachers before August 12.

He further alleged that the Nagaon DC was misleading the Court by giving wrong information in his affidavit regarding encroachment and eviction.
