Bodoland Stir Regains Momentum, Leads to Blockade of Assam National Highways by Protesters.


Bodo News : The agitation for a separate Bodoland flared up again in Assam on Monday after the Centre allegedly stopped their monthly meetings with the movement groups on the issue. Bodo groups blocked national highways in the state for 10 hours on Monday in protest.

The Bodo movement has gained momentum at a time when the state is still healing from the wounds inflicted by the riots in 2012 and 2018.

Agitating against the Centre's 'negligence', thousands of Bodos, led by an exceptionally high number of women, renewed their mobilisations to demand a separate state for the tribe. 

Pramod Boro, president of All Bodo Students Union, which has been leading the movement for four decades, told First post that this is the first time women in Assam have occupied the streets in demand for a separate Bodoland.

Bodos are the biggest plains tribe in Assam. Since 1967, various groups and political parties have been demanding a separate Bodoland. The Bodoland movement turned violent after the Assam Movement (1979-1985) as it was believed that it neglected the issue of preservation of Bodo identity.

As a research paper on the Bodo movement points out: "Clause Six of the Assam Accord would give legitimacy to the imposition of the Assamese language and culture upon the Bodo people and other tribal communities of Assam. The Bodos, along with other tribal communities, resented the campaign of assimilation as they felt that they had no chance of preserving their own cultural heritage in the atmosphere dominated by the majority Assamese culture."

After decades of violent struggles, devolution of power to the Bodos was initiated after the Bodo Liberation Tigers signed an accord of peace in 2003 with the NDA government.

"Bodoland Territorial Area District (BTAD) is a spatial unit run by Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC), that was created in 2003 by carving out some areas of four districts of Assam – Kokrajhar, Chirang, Baksa and Udalguri.

"The BTAD passed 25 Bills related to land and revenue of Bodoland in its area. The Assam government is expected to either review the bills and send them back for rectification if any or send it to the government for assent. But the Government of Assam did none and sad on the bills. This indifference has failed the Bodos as a people,".

Though Bodo movement groups have demanded resumption of talks, the movement has faced resistance in BTAD itself.  But number of non-Bodos are involved in a counter movement against the demand for Bodoland. But Bodo's are not Rest without gain Separate State "Bodoland", Because of Bodo tribe are  oldest cast of Northeast Region. Slogan come out "No Bodoland No Rest", Bodoland is our Blood.
