Nalbari: More than 25 Bodo
political and non-political organisations of Bodoland
Territorial Administered Districts (BTAD) have formed a
united forum and urged the government to hold talks with
both factions of the NDFB.

Bodoland Progressive Front(BPF) General Secretary
Prabin Boro said that the government should take immediate
steps to stop fratricidal clashes in the BTAD areas as this
had adversely affected the development of these areas.

BPF is a constituent of the united forum and almost
all prominent organisations, including Ranjan Daimary faction
of NDFB, of the area have joined hands for the first time to
stop violence and take the development of the area forward.
The forum, however, will not demand a separate state
immediately but focus on creating a violence free atmosphere
for all-round development of the Bodo dominated areas, he
added.
