But only to go unheard. “We won’t allow it to happen. We will stop this encroachment. But government won’t help us,” rued Akhilesh Munda who was also present at the camp when the firing took place in Chauldhuwa.

After days of will-they-won’t-they, BJP has fielded Marinal Kumar Saikia in Koliabor in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls slated for April 7.
Saikia’s name was finalized on Saturday evening after the Central leadership left it completely on the state leadership.
Sources told Assam Times that the state leadership has hardly any interest in this constituency.
President Sarbananda Sonowal urged the party leadership not to go for Koliabor where Chief Minister’s son Gaurav Gogoi is in the fray.
That’s why, the Centre passed the buck on to Sonowal who had to announce Saikia’s name under pressure from the grass root level.
