KOKRAJHAR, Sept 14 - The National Democratic Front of Boroland (Progressive) today observed its 29th �martyrs� day� at the designated camp in Kumguri here.
The day�s programme started with the hoisting of the outfit flag by M Gerema, �home secretary� of the NDFB (P). It was followed by a guard of honour, lighting of candles, homage to martyrs, etc.
B Bwlwgwra, �army chief,� R Daokha, assistant publicity secretary, BK Alongbar, organising secretary, B Binaisha and Garjan Muchahary, deputy chief convener of PJACBM, attended the programme along with other guests and dignitaries.
�We remember those who laid down their precious lives for the cause of Bodoland and pay our highest homage to the martyrs and their bereaved family members on this occasion,� said Daokha, assistant publicity secretary of NDFB (P).
Coming down heavily on the Centre, the NDFB (P) alleged that it (the Central Government) was delaying the resolution of the Bodoland issue. Daokha urged the Centre and the State Government to fulfil the demands raised by the NDFB (P) without any further delay.
The assistant publicity secretary of NDFB (P) also warned that his outfit would be forced to start a vigorous mass movement if the Government failed to resolve the pending issues.
The NDFB (P) has more than 1,000 members in the three designated camps at Kumguri in Kokrajhar, Borbori in Baksa and Chapkaiti in Udalguri. The NDFB was formed in 1986 and after 19 years of an armed struggle, the present faction of the outfit signed a ceasefire agreement with the Government in 2005.
