Sit in dharna at Jantar Mantar by ABSU

The All Bodo Students Union , one of the largest ethnic students union of the north east has organised a sit and dharna at the Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on some of the demands for which the organisation is working for couple of years on 9th November, 2012. The demand includes permanent solution of Bodoland issues. It has demanded the protection of Tribal Land (Assam Land & Revenue Regulation Act, 1886). It has also demanded the implementation of Forest Act, 2006 in Assam. ABSU has urged the government for the upgradation of NRC, Detection & Deportation of Foreign Nationals and sealing of Indo-Bangla Border. This was stated in a release issued by Pramod Boro, Presdient of ABSU.

It is a blunder mistake by Assam government in giving Autonomous region to all unrest tribal groups.To escape from getting trouble while administering state,Assam government without thinking of parmanent solutions,the root cause of unrest,formed autonomous councils just to be in peace for time being till the period of governance. To say practically,the demand of separate state by our people,Bodos is illogic. In the proposed region,koch rajbonshis,rabhas and other communities also have equal rights to disagree or agree being ancentors properties,lands as Bodos think. Instead of struggling for separation,bodos should struggle to get better education and get developed as per with other communities. I also request all educated bodos to be outspoken and speak against illogic demand. I know many well educated and well settled bodos does not support,so need to get hear the voices by others,keeping silent will only makes illogical demands strength.Should follow the example of Election Commissioners, H.S.Brahma.
