Centre to resolve Bodo issue

By SPL CORRESPONDENT

NEW DELHI, Nov 19 - In a fresh attempt to break the deadlock, the Centre on Monday agreed to initiate a fresh dialogue with the Assam government to resolve the Bodo problem.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today chaired a meeting with the Peoples Joint Action Committee for Boroland Movement (PJACBM) that also includes the All Bodo Students Union (ABSU). The tripartite meeting was attended by top officials of the Union Home Ministry and the Assam government. Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Kumar Sanjay Krishna led the Assam government team that also included Special DGP Pallab Bhattacharya.

ABSU president Pramod Boro later told newsmen that the talks were successful and they were satisfied with the attitude of the Centre. The ABSU delegation also reminded the Centre about its commitments and the long delay in the negotiation process, he said.

The Union Home Minister, who reportedly gave a patient hearing, assured the Bodo delegation, which also included former MP Sansuma Khungur Bwiswmutiary, that the Centre will hold a fresh round of talks with the Government of Assam in December to resolve the problem. The Centre will also hold another round of negotiations with Bodo organisations, Singh added.

The ABSU president also clarified that the issue of Union Territorial Council did not figure in talks with the Centre. �The Home Minister did not raise it and we also did not discuss it,� Boro added.

The ABSU is demanding creation of a separate state of Bodoland, as are several other organisations, including the two factions of the NDFB.

On July 14, the Centre tried to revive the stalled dialogue process by holding tripartite talks with the two Bodo groups.
