A stunned Assam Government is trying to call the string of violence in Udalguri an ethnic cleansing by the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) currently in ceasefire with the government.
According to the government sources,its not due to clashes between the Bodos militants and immigrant Bangladeshis, but a systematic ethnic cleansing perpetrated by the NDFB to clear the BTAD areas of the non-Bodos people. The government has already arrested four NDFB cadres on Sunday with weapons saying they were involved in killing a woman and a child in Baksa district.
On the other hand, BTAD chief Hagrama Mohilary, who is the coalition partner of the Gogoi government has already smelt role of the NDFB militant and the Bodo peace Forum saying their role is doubtful.
Meanwhile, the NDFB general secretary Govinda Basumatary has refuted their role in the violence and has rubbished the allegations of involvement in the riot.
