    Modi Leaves For Kokrajhar To Celebrate Signing Of Bodo Accord

    Jangkhritai Pwthar was packed to the brim with enthusiastic supporters who had travelled many hours from different parts of the state

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi flew to Kokrajhar in a helicopter to participate in the celebrations of the signing of the Bodo agreement. The Prime Minister will address a rally in Bodo-dominated Kokrajhar town of Assam.

    Modi was received by Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, NEDA Convenor Himanta Biswa Sarma, Assam Industries Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary, Assam BJP chief Ranjeet Kumar Dass and others at the LGBI Airport.

    It will be his first visit to Assam after the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protests rocked the state. The Assam government has announced a public holiday in the four districts of the BTAD – Kokrajhar, Chirang, Baksa and Udalguri.

    Jangkhritai Pwthar was packed to the brim with enthusiastic supporters who had travelled many hours from different parts of the state.

    They had come in especially-arranged buses and had walked many miles to reach the venue. Many had made their own arrangements to come and listen to Modi.
