BONGAIGAON, Sept 11 - The Bodoland Movement Group organised a mass demonstration on Tuesday at Kasikotra Higher Secondary School playground in Chirang district seeking a separate Bodoland.
The group includes the All Bodo Students� Union (ABSU), People�s Joint Action Committee for Bodoland Movement (PJACBM) and the National Democratic Front of Boroland (Progressive).
�The Government has created a Telengana state, bifurcated Jammu and Kashmir into Union Territories, now it is time to create Bodoland,� said ABSU president Pramod Boro while addressing over 10,000 movement group activists and people gathered at the demonstration venue today.
�No government can sustain by depriving the Bodos of their rights, so the government should address the Bodoland issue in no time to bring lasting peace in the State,� said NDFB (P) president Gobinda Chandra Basumatary before the media.
�The Government should leave aside the divide and rule policy and solve the Bodoland issue,� said former Raijya Sabha MP Urkhaw Gwra Brahma.
The ABSU president slammed sitting MP of Kokrajhar Naba Kumar Sarania for his �divisive politics� between Bodos and non-Bodos and opposed Sarania�s plan to form �BTAD Sena� for the protection of non-Bodos residing in BTAD.
