  • tags: no_tag

    • …facts…reveal how vested political interests have joined hands with illegal settlers and encouraged them to encroach on land, including sensitive Protected Areas..

      The latest incident in which scores of people entered Orang National Park and built up shelters within a span of few hours has demonstrated how well-planned and motivated the entire operation was.

    • Nearly 1,000 people…entered the South-western part of the national park…The status of their citizenship…was very doubtful.

      This is where it gets interesting:

      Sources, on condition of anonymity, told The Assam Tribune that even while they were being pushed out of the national park, the offenders were issuing threats and made reference to a particular political leader of the Congress party.

    • As you can see from the map, the nearest town/city appears to be Tezpur. Sure enough, Tezpur did turn out to be the constituency which appears to include Orang.

    • And guess who turns out to be the Congress candidate from Tezpur?

      Shri Moni Kumar Subba, 3-time MP from Tezpur who lost to the AGP candidate in 2009, after representing the constitutency for almost 11 years.

    • But being a three-time Member of Lok Sabha is not Sh Subba’s only claim to fame. He may well be the only non-Indian citizen to ever become a people’s representative in India’s history.
    • Subba has for 16 years lied that he is an Indian. The truth is he is a Nepalese, and he is a criminal. A report by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) says Subba is a Nepali national originally named Moni Raj Limbo, who escaped from the Illam prison in Nepal while serving sentence for murder.
