KOKRAJHAR, Jan 28: All the elected members of the UPPL, BJP and GSP of the Bodoland Territorial Council today unanimously elected, BJP MCLA from Thuribari constituency Abhiram Mahanayak as the Deputy Speaker of the Bodoland Territorial Council.

It may be mentioned here that like earlier, today also all the BPF members remained absent during the day-long BTC session.

Later talking to mediapersons BTC Chief Pramod Boro said that absence of all the MCLAs from BPF in the Council is unfortunate and it is nothing but flouting of democratic values.
