  • The Assam government cited the reason that the sanctuary's declaration was made without settling the rights of the people living in villages in the area, as justification for its move to withdraw the notification.
  • The Assam government's move to withdraw the sanctuary's notification sparked controversy, with the government arguing that the notification was issued unilaterally by the Forest department without proper consultation with other relevant departments or stakeholders, including the Revenue department or the Chief Minister.
