Why Bodo missing in NRC forms?

The Bodo people want NRC forms in their own language which would be comfortable for them. The demand was raised earlier. But only to be ignored.

It forced the All Bodo Students Union on stage hunger strike for hours in Kokrajhar on Friday.  Hundreds of student activists backed by common people started staging dharna at Bodofa Park in the town from 5 in the morning. 

Protestors told Assam Times that Bodo is one of the 8th schedule language and that’s why, Bodo language should find place in the NRC forms.

“We are disappointed to have found that Bodo language is missing in the NRC forms. It has forced us to sit in hunger strike for 36 hours,” said the ABSU leaders.

 ABSU president Promod Boro told Assam Times that the registrar general of India should look into the demand.
