Assam: AIUDF urges CM to provide appropriate compensation to evicted families

Guwahati: The opposition All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) has requested Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma to provide compensation for rebuilding houses of families who have valid land documents but were evicted in a drive by the authorities in Assam’s Karimganj district.

In the midst of an ongoing flood disaster, the district administration allegedly conducted eviction in a “inhumanitarian manner,” violating fundamental procedures and human rights, according to a fact-finding team from the AIUDF that visited many villages under the Patherkandi revenue circle. 

According to official, the numerous people facing eviction have land pattas of their own for years as well as documents of allotment and registered deeds in their names.

The official claimed that the majority of these inhabitants are from the economically weaker sections.

The inhumane eviction campaign directly violates the right to shelter, which is defined by Article 21 of the Indian Constitution as a fundamental right, official stated.

According to the evicted families, several of their houses, which were built as part of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, were bulldozed, official added.

Meanwhile, the AIDUF urged the chief minister to provide sufficient compensation for the rebuilding of the homes of families who had been forcibly removed and who had valid land records, as well as alternative land and PMAY homes for the resettlement of those who had been residing on government land for a very long time.

Additionally, they also request CM to give the required directives to reconstruct all PMAY homes destroyed during the eviction campaign and to make proper arrangements for food, shelter, and health services for the afflicted families until their resettlement.

Furthermore, the AIUDF leaders requested Sarma to issue the right guidelines so that no eviction would take place without prior arrangement of proper resettlement of the evicted families.
