Congress legislator from Kargil, Asgar Ali Karbalaie, Saturday said that army has occupied agriculture land in Kargil district and Zanskar sub division and don’t pay rent to the land owners.
Karbalie while speaking during discussion on allocation of grants for Revenue, Relief and Rehabilitation in Lower House said that the army has bought agriculture land when no non-state subject can buy land in the state.
“Army has occupied huge agriculture land in Kargil district and Zanskar Sub division. They have totally purchased the land when non-subjects cannot buy the land. I don’t understand how they have bought the land there,” the Congress legislator said.
“The army is neither paying rent nor compensation to those people whose land they have occupied. I request the minister concerned to look into the issue so that the land is freed from the army,” he said.
“I also want assessment of compensation and settlement of land.”
Another Congress MLA from Nobra, Deldan Namgial, said a village in his constituency is being asked by officials that their land records are in Pakistan.
“A village in Turtk area known as Tyashki is asked that its land records lie in Pakistan. For PRCs, the villagers are asked to get affidavit that they are citizens of India,” he said.
He appealed the government to settle the land records of the village.
The MLA also said that non-availability of SDM in the area forced him to “work as SDM for the last two years”.
“I am myself working as SDM for the last two years,” he said, adding “I request the minister for revenue to resolve the issue.”(KNS)
