The movement group for separate Bodoland, ABSU, NDFB (P) and PJACBM once again resumes its democratic mass movement through MAHA DHARNA in Ram Leela Maidan on Tuesday.
Talking to Northeastindia24 Promod Boro, President of All Bodo Student’s Union said that thousands of people from all over Assam, and those Bodo people who are leaving in Delhi took part in this Maha Dharna.
The present Government of India headed by Mr. Narendra Modi who promised to resolve the Boro problem during the election campaign of 2014 has forgotten his tall promises. Said Promod Boro.
The Government of Assam which came to power by giving promises of protecting jati (native people), mati (land) and bheti (foundation of the society) too has forgotten their promises instead they are more interested in inviting more and more Hindu Bangladeshis, he added.
The tribal people’s apprehension of being deprived, discriminated, neglected, repressed and dominated as long as they continue to live in Assam did help crop up a sentiment in the hearts of some of the tribal leaders that they needed a separate state and thus the present generation is upholding movement for creating Bodoland state under Article 2 & 3 of the Constitution of India, said the ABSU president promod Boro.
