BPF alleges political conspiracy

12 Jan 2015 - 5:37am | Hantigiri Narzary

The Bodoland Peoples Front(BPF) party alleged political conspiracy behind the December 23 carnage by NDFB(S) to monger trouble among the Bodos and non Bodos in the run up to the BTC polls.

BPF secretary Prabin Boro told reporters in Kokrajhar on Sunday that the carnage which had claimed over 80 lives in Kokrajhar, Sonitpur and Chirang districts is a fall out of a deep rooted political conspiracy.

He alleged political conspiracy where the NDFB(S) rebels were used. “That’s why, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and IGP(Law & Order) SN Singh have come out with contradictory statement. This should also be brought to the purview of the NIA probe,” said Boro.

On the ‘Operation All-Out’, Boro said that operation should be in strong step against militants and anti-social activity be root out from society, but common publics should not be harassed in the name of operation during launching of operation in the region.

He has demanded sufficient relief materials to the inmates and ensures security to the affected areas before shifting inmates to their respective villages.
