Province 2 Chief Minister Lalbabu Raut at present mentioned that land mafias can be booked at any value.
Addressing a programme organised by the battle committee fashioned to avoid wasting public land at Choharwa of Siraha, CM Raut mentioned individuals concerned in promoting public land can be punished. He insisted that folks promoting and shopping for authorities and forest land within the title of squatters have been criminals.
“Stealing is a criminal offense. Those that purchase stolen items at low cost worth are criminals.
They should be booked as effectively,” added Raut.
Raut thanked the locals for waging a struggle in opposition to the mafia concerned in transferring public land within the names of people. “What you’ve got been doing is nice. Nobody has the precise to promote unregistered land.
The land will likely be returned at any price,” Raut added.
Locals have been staging protest for months demanding that public land registered within the names of people be returned.
