Earlier on August 04, the former members of the disbanded National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) from all factions demanded release of the founder of the NDFB, Ranjan Daimary from jail as early as possible or to shift him from the congested room at 10 APBn Headquarter at Kahilipara in Guwahati. The former members of the outfit expressed resentment over the poor facility provided to him in Kahilipara where he has been lodged in a congested room since July 22.
In a press conference held at PWD Guest House, Kokrajhar, the secretary of the Coordination Committee of Ex-NDFB Welfare Association, Abhiram Basumatary alias B.Anjalu said that the founder chairman of the NDFB, Ranjan Daimary was brought to the HQ of 10 APBn, Kahilipara on the night of July 22 without informing any member of the family or members of the association and he was kept in a small and congested room. He said that the family members came to know about the change of location only on July 27.
He said that Daimary was one of the signatories of the BTR Peace Accord signed on January 27, 2020 and as a signatory, he should have been released from jail to participate in the rebuilding of peace and development of the region. He also said that they were waiting for his release from jail as the people of the region wanted the government to set him free as a signatory of the peace agreement which, otherwise, was meaningless.
