Torch rally for Bodoland

Reiterating its movement for separate Bodoland state, activists of All Bodo Students’ Union (ABSU), under the aegis of six regional committees viz. Dimakuchi, Khagrabari, Khoirabari, Bhergaon, Panery and Tangla supported by PJACBM and NDFB (P), took out a massive torch rally throughout Tangla town on Monday evening.

The activists shouting slogans 'No Bodoland No rest' 'Divide Assam 50-50' demanded early solution to the long-pending demand of creation of separate Bodoland and political rights for Bodos living outside the proposed Bodoland area.

"Our voices have been ignored,the democratic protest through means of non-violence have been ignored said ABSU activist Manmohan Boro. Addressing the gathering of nearly 500 protestors the student body leaders exhorted the Centre to come up with a pragmatic policy on the Bodoland issue . The speakers said that the saffron party is busy celebrating their victory in different state polls ignoring the hunger strike by Bodo people at Kokrajhar in demand of Bodoland.
