|Koch-Rajbongshis perform rituals for unity|
BONGAIGAON, Aug 25 - Koch-Rajbongshi Jatiya Mahasabha, the parent organisation of the community, on Wednesday offered a dhamal – a prayer which is performed with folk musical instrument – to goddess Bagheswari at her temple here and sought her blessings for successful conclusion of their agitation demanding Kamatapur and ST status to the community.
According to the community leaders, they have already lost their trust on political parties and the present government for not addressing the issues.
Besides, lake of mutual understanding among the groups of the community has weakened its unity and strength to fight for its rights. Hence, to get rid of these crises, the Mahasabha had performed the ritual to get the blessings of goddess Bagheswari in her temple here, said Bimal Barman, president of the Mahasabha.
After the prayer, Mahasabha sent a memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi through the Deputy Commissioner.
