No cultivable plot for industry: Govt

The Assam government on Saturday made it plain and simple that under no circumstances it will acquire agricultural land for industrial purpose.

But in the same breath, it clarified plans to reclassify the unused land, where farming never took place.

The government cleared its position after it talked to the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti leadership in Dispur.

Talking to Assam Times, the government officials denied any intention to give agricultural land to industrialists.

They said that the intention was only to correct this and wants to reclassify those lands as "non-agricultural" so that "some developmental works" can be carried out in future.
