Bhoomipujan on AMU land: CM warns trouble-makers


Patna,(BiharTimes): A day after a large number of tribals led by the BJP MLC, Dilip Kumar Jaiswal, performed bhoomipujan on the land transferred to the off-campus branch of the Aligarh Muslim University, chief minister Nitish Kumar on Monday warned of strict action against those attempting to create trouble on the plot.

The tribals led by the BJP MLC and armed with bows, arrows and other weapons squatted on the land already transferred to the AMU.

However, talking to mediapersons Nitish said whosoever tries to create disorder would be firmly dealt with. He also asked the AMU authorities to start work on the land without further delay. The President has already given his assent for the centre.

According to Principal Secretary, Home, Amir Subhani soon after reports reached here, the district authorities were ordered not to tolerate any nuisance and remove the people trying to create disturbances at the AMU site.

Subhani, who has been keeping a close watch on the situation in Kishanganj, said people in general showed patience. He said two vehicles, both bearing the registration number of Jharkhand, were seized from the spot and two of the tribal leaders were taken into custody.

The district magistrate, Kishanganj, Sandeep Kumar Pudakalkatti, said it is the government land and can not be claimed by the tribals.

The government last year allotted 224 acres of land at Chakla and Govindpur mauza under Kishanganj circle.

After the bhoomipujan, local RJD MLA, Akhtar ul Iman, on Sunday protested on the streets and disrupted traffic.

The tribal leaders, however, said they would not leave the land.
