MUSHALPUR, March 23 � �An unstable environment prevails in the entire BTAD due to the corrupt misrule of the BPF in the last ten years.The only way to get rid of the present condition is to go for a change. Another black chapter will be scripted in BTAD unless we bring this change,� this was stated by Pramod Boro, president of ABSU while addressing an election meeting at Nikashi in Baksa in support of Lekhnath Guragain, PCDR candidate for No. 23 Dihira BTCLAC on March 20.
He said that corruption in the BTAD exceeds any corruption in the country. The rulers who used their political power for their personal ends, must be ousted from power. PCDR has come forward to bring a change in BTAD by upholding the democratic values. He appealed to the public to give the PCDR a chance to bring in a corruption-free rule, development of all on equal footing, equal rights to all, transparent administration and if the PCDR cannot succeed, it will voluntarily give up power.
The ABSU president reiterated that every ethnic community should get the opportunity to maintain their ethnic, linguistic and cultural identity in the BTAD. He further stated that national political parties should keep away from contesting the BTC polls to give the local people a chance to bring in the desired changes in this region as the BTAD was created considering the failure of such national parties to develop this region.
Speaking in the meeting, Birendra Subba, former president of the All Gorkha Students� Union, said that while in power for ten years, BPF paid no attention to the development of the Gorkhas of the BTAD despite the fact that the Gorkhas extended best possible help during the Bodo movement. Considering the indifference of the previous Government, the AAGSU has extended help to the PCDR with a hope that it will ensure equal development and equal rights for all in a corruption-free rule�. Hangama Narzary, president of Baska district ABSU, Lekhnath Guragain, PCDR candidate for Dihira BTCLAC and Katiram Boro, PCDR candidate for Baganpara BTCLAC were also present. The election office of the PCDR for Dihira constituency was also set up on the same day.
