KOKRAJHAR, March 13 - The indefinite hunger strike resorted to by the All Bodo Students� Union (ABSU) and its movement group continued even today.

On the fourth day of their hunger strike to press for a separate State for the community, the hunger strikers said they would not accept any medical aid until a formal assurance for a comprehensive political dialogue is given.

�The Government through their several pillars are sending messages that because of the election result and celebration of Holi festival, they have not been able to arrive at a decision for political dialogue. This appears as a silly excuse to us. Does the Government machinery stops functioning during festivals and election results? If the Government cannot reach out to us politically, then send us 1,111 coffins, and let democracy prevail over our dead bodies,� ABSU president Promod Boro said today.

�We would like to humbly tell the Government that if 100 hours or any number of hunger strikes is not responded positively, then national highway and railway lines passing through Bodoland will be blocked for equal number of hours� said NDFB(P) president Dhiren Boro.

Former MP of Rajya Sabha UG Brahma said, �if this nation is still governed by democratically elected representatives, why have they failed to respond to such peaceful and non-violent movement. Hope people at the helm of affairs will realise the gravity of the situation and come forward for talks at the earliest possible�.

The All Bodo Students� Union (ABSU), National Democratic Front of Bodoland (P) and the People�s Joint Action Committee for Bodoland Movement are together holding the indefinite hunger strike at Kokrajhar Govt. HS&MP School playground.

It may be mentioned that ABSU president Promod Boro had led a mass rally on March 14 in Kokrajhar town.
