    Farewell To Arms

    27 years after the first Bodo accord was signed, the Bodo insurgent group National Democratic Front of Boroland came over the ground for peace talk process. Their farewell to arms for the interest of the Bodo community is a welcoming move of the group.

    In the last 26 days, the state witnessed a major migration from insurgency to the mainstream.  M Batha alias Binod Mushahary and B Bidai alias Bishnu Basumatary, two top leaders of the NDFB-S, also came overground on January 22nd, 2020. On the other hand, 644 militants surrendered in Guwahati on January 23rd, 2020, before Chief Minister Sonowal and Assam DGP Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta.

    It is also recognised as one of the major achievement of the saffron party-led National Democratic Alliance government ahead of the Assam Assembly election to be held in 2021. Notably, there was an anti-BJP wave in the state after the contentious Citizenship Amendment Bill became an Act. This was widely accepted as a bad sign for the BJP ahead of the next election.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the accord will usher new dawn of peace, harmony and togetherness. Besides, he said that the Accord will further protect and popularise the unique culture of the Bodo people.

    It may be mentioned that the first Bodo accord was signed in 1993 with the All Bodo Students’ Union, leading to the creation of a Bodoland Autonomous Council. The second Bodo accord was signed in 2003 with the militant group Bodo Liberation Tigers, which lead to the formation of a BTC with four districts of Assam – Kokrajhar, Chirang, Baska and Udalguri – called the BTAD. The region is predominantly inhabited by the indigenous Bodo people and other indigenous communities of Assam.
