GORESWAR: To demand the exclusion of the non-Bodo villages from the Bodo Territorial Region (BTR) and ensuring the land, political, economic, language and cultural rights of non-Bodo people in BTR, a massive rally was organized at Goreswar in Baksa district on Sunday.
The welcome address was delivered by Jogeswar Kalita, secretary of the ‘O-Boro Suraksha Samitee’, while Arabinda Deka, senior citizen of Goreswar, presided over the rally. Taking part in the rally as the chief guest, AJYCP president Biraj Kumar Talukdar thanked the NDFB leaders and the cadres who have come back to the mainstream. He said that the O-Boro organizations had been fighting for their rights since the inception of the BTC (Bodoland Territorial Council) Accord.
“We welcome the BTR Accord but the government must listen to us. The Government should not execute any clause of BTR Accord without first excluding the non-Bodo villages from BTR Accord,” he pointed out.
