NEW DELHI, Jan 14 � Bodo National Conference (BNC) is likely to meet Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh on Saturday to press for engaging Ranjan Daimary faction in political dialogue, besides expediting the ongoing talks with pro- talk NDFB group.
A 72-member strong delegation of the BNC has arrived in national capital to meet the Prime Minister, seeking his intervention in the matter, Rajya Sabha MP Biswajeet Daimary told this newspaper.
The BNC is seeking early resolution of the vexed problem of militancy and an end to the killings in the Bodoland areas. The delegation also has a list of demands concerning economic uplift of the area.
The delegation that includes leaders of all Bodo organisations is going to be headed by BTC chief, Hagrama Mohilary. The delegation had visited New Delhi last year and met Union Home Secretary, G K Pillai to appraise him about their charter of demands.
The Ranjan Daimary faction, which is involved in major incidents of violation, has already offered a unilateral ceasefire in a letter to Chief Minister, Tarun Gogoi. BNC now wants the Centre to involve Daimary�s group in peace negotiations.
