|Cong leaders demand equal rights to all in BTR set-up|
UDALGURI, Feb 20 - The BTR Accord should respect all those living peacefully in the Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR) along with the Bodos, and all others living here since centuries should get equal rights as per the Constitution of India.
This was observed by Ripun Bora, president of the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee recently at the Laxmi Narayan Mandir premises in Orang of Udalguri district.
Addressing a mammoth rally organised by the Udalguri district committee of the Congress, the APCC president criticised the CAA and said, “Assam is already burdened with her 3.21 crore population and now it is quite impossible for us to accommodate any more outsiders. If the people of Assam give access to outsiders, our future generations would curse us and it would be too late for us to correct the wrong,” Borah added.
The mass rally organised against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2029 was chaired by Narayan Adhikari, president of Udalguri district committee of Congress and was also addressed by Apurba Bhattacharjee and Kamal Medhi, both spokespersons of APCC, Rana Borah, secretary of APCC, while it was attended by senior Congress leaders like Hamidul Islam, Naba Kurmi and Prashanta Lahkar.
