By Correspondent

KOKRAJHAR, Jan 27 - A festive mood prevailed at Kokrajhar town today following the signing of a fresh Bodo Accord in New Delhi.

Large sections of Bodo people in their traditional attire started celebrating the signing of the BTR Accord between all factions of the NDFB and the governments at New Delhi in which the BTC administration and the ABSU also took part.

People in large numbers gathered at the central ABSU office at Bagansali in Kokrajhar to mark the day since the morning and started dancing and exchanged happiness distributing sweets among themselves.

K Basumatary, education secretary of ABSU terming the pact as historic said it will bring about a new era of peace and development in the Bodoland region. The day was also marked with the bursting of fire crackers at different places of Kokrajhar town.

Our Udalguri Correspondent adds: �The new Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR) will usher in an everlasting peace in the entire Bodo-populated region with the signing of the historic peace accord involving all the factions of the NDFB�.

This was the immediate view of Prodeep Kumar Daimary, former deputy chief of the erstwhile Bodoland Autonomous Council (BAC) and a former MCLA and former secretary of UPPL, a regional political party.

Daimary, who was once a close right hand of Bodofa Upendra Nath Brahma during the Bodoland movement of the All Bodo Students� Union (ABSU) welcomed the BTR Accord and hoped that it would honour all those living permanently in the region and safeguard their basic rights. If the Accord is implemented in letter and spirit, there would be speedy development of the region with the setting up of medical colleges and universities and technical institutions.

Our Diphu Correspondent adds: The historic Bodo Accord signed between the Bodo leadership, Assam Government and Central government today has been widely welcomed by the Bodo community of Karbi Anglong.

�We are extremely happy and optimistic about the outcome of the accord, which will fetch lasting peace for the Bodo community and help in establishing regional peace. We are looking forward towards the implementation of this accord which of course will be defined by the implementing committee or the commission to be constituted by the Central government,� said a senior level Bodo leader on condition of anonymity.

However, the Karbi Students� Association has expressed its strong opposition and has vowed that it will prevent the move of the government to accord Sixth Schedule status to the Bodo community in the hills region of Assam at all costs.
