Appease Bangladesh with West Bengal and Assam land and yet those shameless beggars still keep streaming across our borders. Cede Kachchathivu to Sri Lanka. What next from Congress that has been harming Indian interests since Jawaharlal Nehru. BJP hoists tricolour on disputed land near border SILCHAR: Senior BJP leaders on Sunday afternoon hoisted the national flag at the 'disputed' Lathitila-Dumabari area in Karimganj district of Assam near the Bangladesh border. State BJP chief SarbanandaSonowal, national vice-president SS Ahluwalia and MP BijoyaChakrabarty were among the senior leaders who vowed not to allow handing over of the land in question to Bangladesh under the land-swap deal signed between India and Bangladesh on September 6, 2011. Amid tight security measures taken by the BSF in the area, more than 200 people, including BJP leaders, workers and locals, reached the 94.6-acre plot of land, between pillar No. 1397 and 1400, at Lathitila at 3:30pm to hoist the tricolour. However, BSF authorities allowed only five people to go to the 'disputed' site, asking the others to wait at the border outpost. "The land-swap deal signed between India and Bangladesh is nothing but a compromise of India's sovereignty. It's full of errors, and the interest of Assam has been largely been sacrificed," said state BJP president Sarbananda Sonowal after hoisting the flag. The protocol to the 1974 land boundary demarcation between India and Bangladesh was signed between the two countries in 2011 during the visit of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and four northeast chief ministers to Dhaka. According to the deal, the issue of adversely possessed land in Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura and West Bengal along the India-Bangladesh border was finalized. According to the protocol, 94.6 acre at Lathitila and 299.04 acre at Pallathal, both in Karimganj, which have been in adverse possession of Bangladesh since 1965, have been ceded to Bangladesh. The state has also lost a village, Boraibari, in Dhubri, covering an area of 189.06 acre. "We demand immediate scrapping of the recently signed land deal. Until and unless the government scraps the deal with Bangladesh, BJP will go on with the agitation programme," said Sonowal. The land-swap deal has become a major political issue in Assam over the last couple of years with opposition parties including BJP and AGP demanding that the deals be scrapped.
