Dispur on Monday set up a special panel to rehabilitate the evicted people from Amchang wildlife sanctuary.
The panel to be headed by State Forest and Environment Minister Pramila Rani Brahma was formed in a meeting held at Janata Bhawan at Dispur on Monday.
Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal announced this before a delegation of four Mishing organizations—TMPK, MMK, TMMK and Mishing Agom—who met the Chief Minister at Dispur.
CMO sources said the members of the panel are two MLAs of Mishing community—Bhuban Pegu and Ronoj Pegu—besides Kamrup (M) Deputy Commissioner M Angamuthu.
Over the last couple of days, over 400 residential structures including schools buildings have been demolished in Amchnag, triggering protests across the state against the eviction drive.
The Kamrup (Metro) district administration and State Forest department on Wednesday suspended the eviction drive on November 30.
Eviction was suspended following instruction from the Gauhati High Court after the state government made a verbal submission before the court.
A survey in 2014 had found 1,114 households with a population of 6,000 in 24 locations inside Amchang.
Of its 78.64 square km area, 500 hectares were under encroachment.
