BONGAIGAON, Dec 1 – To solve the various problems of the students in the Bodo belt, BTC chief Hagrama Mahilary is going to form a new student organization which would be named as Bodoland Students’ Union (BSU) under the banner of his party Bodoland Peoples’ Front (BPF) on December 5 at Bodoland University in Kokrajhar.
Mahilary announced it today at a public meeting at Subaijhar under Bijni sub-division in Chirang district. Addressing the gathering the BTC chief said that the ABSU’s agitation for Bodoland is nothing but a political tactic aiming at 2014 Lok Sabha poll. Mahilary also criticized the ABSU president Pramod Boro and said that ABSU is more active in politics rather than the welfare of the students in the BTAD.
The new student body would be formed from four BTAD districts and 10 sub-divisions, Hagrama said.
Deputy Chief Khampa Borgoyari said that the AKRSU, Bengali Youth Student Federation and ABSU only voice on political issues instead of the student issues. Hence, he supported the initiative to form the new student body by Hagrama Mahilary. Minister Chandan Brahma also criticized the ABSU leaders.
However, Chirang district ABSU president Jayanta Basumatary said that responsible person like Hagrama Mahilary should not criticize any leader on personal matter.
