Paralyzing BTAD bandh

Normal life comes to a grinding halt in BTAD following 12 hour bandh in protest against GK Pillai’s stock taking visit which has already been cancelled.

Schools and colleges, shops and markets are remaining closed under the impact of the paralyzing bandh which started at 6 in the morning.

The impact in Kokrajhar is not so huge in view of the rally organized on the occasion of the former union home secretary’s visit. The Centre set up a one man commission of GK Pillai to study the separate Bodoland demands afresh.

Non Bodo organizations along with a section of Bodo organizations have vehemently opposed the expert panel calling it a delaying tactic.
