On 3rd of September, administration buldozed around 300 houses of Chitalmari village in Assam's Shonitpur district and cleared a total of 864 bighas land. According to Govt's plan, a Solar project will be set up on the cleared land. Among the evicted people, most are Bengali Hindus. Others are from Muslims and Nepali community.

And there is huge amount of grivence among Bengali Hindus regarding this eviction. According to locals, this village comes under Barsala constituency and Ganesh Limbu of BJP won this seat. All the Bengali Hindu families living in this Govt's land are staunch supporters of BJP.

Evicted Bengali Hindus alleged that during last assembly election, BJP promised that Hindu families wouldn't be evicted. Believing this, Bengali Hindus in large numbers had voted for BJP candidate Ganesh Limbu. But after winning the election, neither Ganesh Limbu nor BJP kept promise, they alleged.

Satyen Dhar, resident of Chitalmari village, whose house was demolished, said, “ Seven months ago, eviction notice was given. We rushed to BJP MLA Ganesh Limbu. He said that the notice was given mistakenly. He also promised us that Hindu families wouldn't be evicted. But he didn't keep his promise ”

A Bengali Hindu woman said, “We were living on that land for 40 years. We have Patta(Land given by Govt.) and we build that house under Govt's Awas Yojona Scheme. But, administration didn't listen to us.”

Several Hindu families alleged that several temples have been demolished in that village. After eviction drive, they have nothing left now. Many Hindu families are living now shanties beside roads. Others have taken shelters in a local temple.

Many Bengali Hindus alleged that BJP has deceived them. BJP promised to protect them if voted to power. But after election, they are not listening to their plights. Some evicted Hindu villagers said in rage, “We will not vote to BJP in next election.”
