Protect water bodies: CM

Chief minister Tarun Gogoi on Monday made it plain and simple that the government won’t allow anybody to occupy forest land and water bodies.

In his address at the land patta distribution function at Sankardev Kalakhetra, Gogoi said that the government is committed to provide land for the landless and that it does not mean that all lands are free for these people.

His comment assumes significance when KMSS has been agitating for lands in the hills and water bodies.
