    BTAD Ready To Welcome PM Modi; Public Holiday In 4 Districts

    To welcome the Prime Minister, a cultural programme of the state's ethnic groups is being organised

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Bodo-dominated Kokrajhar district of Assam on February 7th, 2020 to take part in the celebrations over the signing of the historic Bodo agreement.

    The Prime Minister’s Office in a statement said that more than four lakh people from Bodoland Territorial Area Districts (BTAD) and other parts of Assam are likely to attend the rally at Jangkritai Fwtar near Kokrajhar, 216km from Guwahati.

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

    Modi is scheduled to arrive in Guwahati at around 11:30 am. He will then fly to Kokrajhar in a chopper. To welcome the Prime Minister, a cultural programme of the state’s ethnic groups is being organised. Hundreds of Bodo girls will perform the traditional Bagurumba dance to welcome him.

    The Union home ministry on January 27th, 2020 signed a historic Memorandum of Settlement (MoS) with all the factions of National Democratic Front of Boroland (NDFB) and Assam government. The ABSU, which has been spearheading the statehood movement, was also a signatory.

    The factions of NDFB viz Gobindo Basumatary faction, Dhirendra Bodo faction, Ranjan Daymari faction and Saoraigwra faction and the United Bodo Peoples Organization are the signatories of the Accord.

    Hailing the Accord, Modi said that it would usher in a new dawn of peace, harmony and togetherness and that those associated with armed resistance groups would now enter the mainstream and contribute to the nation’s progress.

    A cultural programme of ethnic groups of Assam has been organised by the Assam Government to showcase the diversity of the state. People start gathering at the venue since morning.
