NDFB(P) sends memo to PM on Bodoland

By Correspondent

BONGAIGAON, Sept 1 � The National Democratic Front of Boroland (Progressive) has sent a memorandum to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, through the Deputy Commissioners of Chirang and Bongaigaon districts today after staging a sit-in demonstration at Kajalgaon stadium field.

In the memorandum, it was stated: �Boro and other indigenous tribal peoples living in Assam are the sons of the soil who are socio-economically and socio-politically exploited, dominated, suppressed and marginalised. They have been in this land for the last 700 years and had kings who ruled in different kingdoms and territories at different times... instead of giving due recognition to their history and their sacrifices in the freedom movement, they were forcibly pushed into the fold of Assamese identity even if they have vast difference in ethnicity, language and culture and are now living as the second class citizens in their own inherited land.�

It was also mentioned in the memorandum that two Bodo Accords were signed between the Boro leadership and the Government of India in 1993 and 2003 with an objective of resolving the Bodoland movement. But the Boro people could not be happy on the ground that both the accords were only development oriented and failed to address the question of political rights of the Boro and other tribal people.

The most important and burning issue of influx have also been mentioned in the memorandum. It was said, �... the alarming influx of the illegal migrants to Assam has become a serious threat to the security of India. The Assamese leadership, who are totally dependent on the vote bank of the illegal migrants, can no more save Assam as the part of India. They have already bowed down and succumbed to the Bangladeshis. There is every possibility of Assam being ceded to Bangladesh at any moment as the population of Bangladeshi migrants has been soaring in every year... for the sake of India�s security we feel the creation of Bodoland State is acute necessity. Our people are able to stand against the onslaught of the influx provided they are equipped with adequate power and authority. Bodoland will be saved as the integral part of India under the leadership of the Boro people.�

Besides, the organisation also pressed their demand to expedite the dialogue with Centre, hold political level dialogue for early solution of Boroland and to concede the demand of Boroland State for the Boro and other indigenous tribal people.
