KOKRAJHAR: The People's Joint Action Committee for Boroland Movement (PJACBM) on Tuesday demanded that the election to BTC should be held as early as possible to ensure a stable administration and fast progress of the region. The committee also said the war of words between the leaders and supporters of different parties had turned ugly which was not a good sign.
Addressing mediapersons, the chief convener of PJACBM, Garjan Mashahary said the BTC was being run by the Governor since last part of April and many developmental activities had been halted due to lack of elected council government. He said the ongoing crisis in BTC amongst the political parties and their hate speeches had affected all sections of people in an adverse manner.
When asked as to how it was possible to hold BTC election during the pandemic, Mashahary said that the COVID-19 situation in BTC region was not critical and it was better to hold the election soon before the pandemic took a worse turn. He also said that the Governor could have given a chance to former BTC chief Hagrama Mohilary to run the council as caretaker BTC chief. He further said that challenges against the Governor's Rule were pending at Gauhati High Court and he hoped that the verdict would be in their favour.
