AJYCP asks forest minister to quit

The Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad have expressed grave concern over the repeated incidents of rhino deaths in Kaziranga and demanded immediate resignation of the forest minister.

In a press statement issued here on Thursday, AJYCP president Biraj Kumar Talukdar said that the flood related deaths could be prevented by raising highland inside the park with systematic planation. “Raising highlands in the one fourth portion with systematic plantation of the national park would help the animals get rid of the flood waters,” said Talukdar.

The AJYCP president criticised the government alleging its failure to deal with the rhino poaching incidents. Talukdar further suspected the involvement of a section of KNP officials who are closely associated with a circle of powerful political leaders in Dispur. “The repeated incidents of rhino poaching have forced us to suspect the involvement of a circle of KNP officials with the patronage by a group of powerful political leaders in Dispur,” said the AJYCP president.

He further suggested a territorial army in the line of the Rashtriya Rifles to firmly deal with the rhino poachers.

Talukdar has questioned the duel charge of KNP Director MK Yadava as Amtron Director which, he said, would not allow him to concentrate on the national park.

“Why a person holding such a crucial post like KNP director has been given duel charge? Doesn’t it suggest lack of sincerity of the authorities?”

He demanded immediate resignation of forest minister to pave the way for a capable one to take the reins.
