The law will permit only Assamese individuals to buy land in regions like Majuli, Batadrava, Barpeta, and more, aiming to strengthen a shared sense of identity.

Sarma, while speaking at the Swahid Divas programme at Swahid Smarak Khetra, Pachim Boragaon, stressed on the preservation of Assamese culture and the necessity for both governmental and community initiatives to actively contribute to this effort.

Sarma voiced concern over incidents where Assamese government employees, especially from the revenue and forest departments, have enabled outsiders to buy and occupy land.

The proposed law, according to the Chief Minister, aims to halt such activities and safeguard the interests of Assam and its people.
