GUWAHATI, March 4: The All Assam Koch Rajbongshi Sanmilani (AAKRS) has taken a number of resolutions that dare the recent decision taken by the BTC executive council on land rights and transfer of land in the BTAD.

The AAKRS held its emergent executive meeting at OBC complex at Rukmini gar in Guwahati on Sunday when it took as many as nine resolutions.

The meeting demanded BTC CEM Hagrama Molilary to cancel its decision taken on land rights and transfers. It said that the BTAD had only 18 per cent Bodos and 82 per cent non-Bodos, and in the event of non-Bodos leaving the land the BTAD would be a cremation ground. The Sanmilani demanded immediate dissolution of the BTC.

In another resolution, the Sanmilani called a BTAD bandh on March 6 in support of demand for ensuring land rights of non-Bodos in the Bodo politico-administrative setup. It also appealed to all Koch-Rajbongshis to quit BTC and all non-Bodos to get ready to face any eventualities in the BTAD. The Sanmilani has also appealed to the Centre and the State Government to protect and preserve all heritage sites of the Koch-Rajbonghis scattered in Kokrajhar, Gossaigaon, Bijni, Baksa, Mangaldai, Udalguri and Chirang. The meeting also demanded deletion of the word ‘Bodoland’ from every nomenclature in the BTAD. The meeting also decided to ostracize the Koch-Rajbongshis who attended a meeting organized by BTC CEM Hagrama Mohilary at Bhairabkunda on Sunday. They also formed a three-member committee to conduct an inquiry into Koch-Rajbongshis who had accompanied Mohilary representing the Koch-Rajbongshis to New Delhi, said Sanmilani’s general secretary Himu Rajbongshi. The meeting was presided over by Deva Kumar Saikia.
