    16 Injured After Modi Rally-Bound Vehicle Meets With Accident

    The Assam government has announced a public holiday in the four districts of the BTAD – Kokrajhar, Chirang, Baksa and Udalguri

    As many as 16 boys sustained severe injuries after their vehicle met with an accident in Bongaigaon district of Assam on February 7th, 2020.

    The vehicle was moving towards Jangkritai Fwtar near Kokrajhar where Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a ‘thanksgiving’ rally to celebrate the signing of the historic Bodo agreement.

    As per the latest information, a group of 20 boys was travelling in a Tata Sumo when it lost control and rammed into a wall. The accident took place near Borbil under Manikpur Police Station along the NH-31.

    The injured persons have been rushed to a nearby hospital. Five persons are said to be critical.

    Four lakh people from Bodoland Territorial Area Districts (BTAD) and other parts of Assam are likely to attend the rally. To encourage mass participation, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal’s government has announced a public holiday in the four districts of the BTAD – Kokrajhar, Chirang, Baksa and Udalguri.

    People gathered at the venue in huge numbers. The roads leading to the venue were clogged with traffic as scores of BJP cadres and Bodo people from various parts of the state headed for the Jangkhritai Pwthar.

    Thousands of Modi hoardings line the roads leading to the venue, which saw a huge police presence. Young girls and boys were seen waving the tricolour as the crowd is waiting to catch a glimpse of the Prime Minister.
