The All Bodo Students Union organized the procession where nearly 300 people thronged the Rajghat at 10 in the morning and marched to Parliament.
Raising banners and play cards the processonists shouting slogans demanding separate Bodoland which they call the key to uplift the BTAD people.
Talking to www.assamtimes.org, Prafulla Basumatary said,”we will keep fighting for a separate Bodoland since this is the only way to solve the confronting issues. We won't leave it half done.”
“For the last one and a half decade both Delhi and Dispur have been assuring us of measures to mitigate our miseries. We have been talking of separate statehood. Never the governments have said us no. That means our demands are accepted. Now we need to carry out the struggle,” said Pratibha Daimary who have come from Kokrajhar.
Same sentiment echoes in Govinda Ramchiary who said,” we need Bodoland. There is no alternative. If the government want us to develop the first and foremost task is to create the Bodoland. There is no option.”
