AKM flays alleged encroachment


Ao Students’ Conference (AKM) has expressed anguish and resentment at the alleged encroachment incidents at Aokum and Yajang villages by Assam police and forest officials.
It said that on May 7, Assam police and forest officials allegedly removed AKM’s Reserve Forest signboard board at Aokum village. They also destroyed some plantations at Yajang village on May 5, it added.
Addressing media persons, AKM led by its president Nungdokyanger and other officials stated that the “high handedness” of Assam police has hurt the sentiments of the Aos particularly the student community. AKM reiterated that AKM Reserve forest was donated by Aokum village of Tsurangkong range under Mokokchung district in 1997 and that AKM had never encroached others land till date.
It, therefore, demanded that Assam government restore the damage done on or before May 12. In the event of any unprecedented and unwanted situations, Assam government will be solely held responsible, it said, adding that AKM anticipated prompt actions from the authorities in order to maintain peaceful coexistence.
