TANGLA: BTC supremo and Bodoland People’s Front president Hagrama Mohilary has promised the people schemes of inclusive growth and development if BPF is voted back to power. He has promised the establishment of development boards for every community, land registrar office in each district headquarter and land pattas to those residing in government land.
Addressing a gathering of more than 10,000 people at a youth rally organized by BPF and its student wing Bodoland Students’ Union (BSU) at Ambagaon in Udalguri district on Saturday, Mohilary maintained that the development boards which would be set up once BPF was voted to power, would address the issues plaguing the communities residing in the four districts of BTC. He further claimed that the party had continued its alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) in the BTC polls.
Mohilary also announced candidates for some constituencies and said that Fakiragram and Nagrijuli BTC constituency in Kokrajhar and Baksa respectively had been offered to BJP and his party would not field candidates there, adding that Thuribari BTC constituency in Chirang had been left for AGP.
Assam Minister and BPF legislator Rihon Daimari exhorted the party workers to be part of the massive campaign of the party and be stakeholders of peace and development in the Bodo belt. “The polls this time is a litmus test for BPF,’ Daimari asserted but expressed confidence that BPF would form the government for the fourth consecutive term.
Rajya Sabha MP and BPF leader Biswajit Daimari lambasted the All Bodo Students’ Union(ABSU) and United People’s Party Liberal(UPPL) alleging that the student body and the party had been mongering false information among voters to malign the image of the ruling BPF. Daimari asserted that the Bodo belt had been witness to growth, development, and peace under the tenure of BPF and expressed confidence that people would vote the party to power again.
Dhekiajuli BJP legislator Ashok Singhal, the observer of Mwdaibari BTC constituency, attending a party workers’ meet at Tangla town in Udalguri district on Saturday evening, said that BJP had decided to contest polls alone to honor the aspirations of the party workers in the Bodo belt. He further claimed that BJP would get landslide victory in the majority of constituencies and form the next government.
