TEZPUR, Aug 25 - As part of the ongoing movement on the Bodoland issue, the All Bodo Students� Union (ABSU) in association with the NDFB (P and R) and the People�s Joint Action Committee for Bodoland Movement (PJACBM) has resolved to stage a series of movement from�August 28, including�the national highway blockade for 10 hours by the Bodo women.
Highlighting the programme details before media here, ABSU president Pramod Boro said besides the above mentioned agenda, the organisations would register strong protest against the BJP Government�s indifferent attitude towards the long pending problems of the Bodo people through�12 hours Assam bandh on�September 12, an indefinite mass hunger strike from�October 1, 24 hours railway blockade in October and indefinite economic blockade in November.
�The movement for creation of �Bodoland� has been going on for the last fifty years.
