A shocking incident has come into the light in Biswanath, where a small entrepreneur was outcast from the Sankaradeva Sangha for running a broiler farm and a piggery business at their home in Ghahigaon area. The Sangha banned the family of Balendra Nath from attending any kind of social functions for running a broiler farm and a piggery.
Meanwhile, the decision of the Srimanta Sankaradeva Sangha received widespread criticisms across the State. Reacting to the development, Secretary of Srimanta Sankaradeva Sangha said that there was no rule in the constitution of the Sangha that its members cannot run a broiler farm or a piggery business at their home.
Speaking to Pratidin Time, Sangha Secretary, Babul Bora said, “There is no such rule in our constitution against broiler farm or a piggery. The decision was taken by the Sangha unit itself. However, we asked for a detailed report from the Afrakhat unit regarding the incident.”
Executive member of the Sangha, Nabakrishna Rajkhowa also reiterated that the constitution of the Sangha does not speak against broiler farm or a piggery.
Notably, as per a notification of the Afrakhat unit of the Sangha, a decision was taken by the Madhya Chaiduar Anchalik Branch to bar the members of the Sangha, who runs broiler farm or a piggery in their houses.
