    BTC Power Tussle Continues: Hagrama To Move Court Against Floor Test Result

    Hagrama Mohilary alleged that none of the composite floor test was done as per the directions of the Gauhati High Court.

    Guwahati: Despite losing the composite floor test at the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) in Kokrajhar, former chief Hagrama Mohilary said that he will approach court again challenging today’s verdict.

    Former Chief Hagrama Mohilary alleged that none of the test was done as per the directions of the Gauhati High Court, which had ordered a composite floor test following Mohilary’s writ petition.

    Alleging that protem speaker of the BTC had violated the guidelines set by GHC, Hagrama Mohilary said, “We had demanded secret ballot for the floor test. But our demand was not met. The high court guidelines were violated since the beginning. We will definitely challenge it legally.”

    “There was no floor test. We did not see or hear anything. The procedure was incomplete, and the agenda remains unfinished,” he added.

    The alliance led by UPPL president Pramod Boro received the support of 22 members. With this majority, Pramod Bodo will lead the BTC as its Chief Executive Member (CEM).

    After the victory, Pramod Boro condemned the ruckus created by the members of BPF at the session. The members of BPF party led by Hagrama Mohilary staged an intense protest in the ongoing session leading to heated exchange among the parties in the ongoing session.
