Akhil targets Rocky on rhino poaching

KMSS seems to have targeted Rockybbul Hussain capitalizing on his failure to stop rhino poaching in Kazirnaga.

Led by its president Akhil Gogoi, hundreds of KMSS activists staged dharna on Monday at Dighalipukhuri demanding the forest minister’s resignation immediately.

Talking to reporters, Gogoi said that if Hussian is allowed to continue in the helm of affairs, Assam will have to pay heavy price. They further threatened to intensify the protest if rhino poaching is not strictly dealt with.
