TANGLA: Joining the 'home coming' move of insurgent groups, as many as 12 cadres of the newly-floated insurgent group- the United Liberation of Bodoland (ULB) - laid down their arms before Assam Police in Dimakuchi under Udalguri district of Assam on Wednesday.
The cadres of the ULB laid down their arms at Badlapara TE under Dimakuchi PS in presence of Udalguri Superintendent of Police, Hiranya Barman and other higher officials of the district Police. Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) CEM Pramod Boro appreciated the decision of all cadres and leaders of the outfit to shun violence and return to the mainstream.
The insurgent group was formed with the core demand of separate Bodoland and release of founder chairman of National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB), Ranjan Daimary who is in jail after being convicted by a special court in the 2008 Assam serial blasts. Pertinently, the move comes after Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma directed the Assam Police to motivate the cadres to maintain peace in the State as well as the Bodo belt.
