             To the next talks, Bodoland has remained an apple of discord as the same geographical location has been demanded by the other communities with fewer competencies. Recently, some of our honoured leaders have claimed themselves as the only precursor of Bodoland movement, that they can conceive separate Bodoland state only on the lines of the present BTC which lacks many advantages of administration development. They think of conceiving a full pledged statehood with increased power of home and finance department to be independent and free from state interference. The govt. hinted it and it may also materialize.

          It’s a good idea intertwined with the idea of integrity and understanding. Many of the intellectuals support this idea.

        But, the reality has been quite different at present. The recent up rise of the anti-Bodo elements in the heart of Bodoland has resulted due to the deprivation of their rights and privileges as they asserted and it has crippled the very foundation of the unity that the Bodos had been enjoying under the leaderships of BPF and ABSU. It would be a gross mistake on the parts of BPF to say that they had never been a part of Boodoland movement under the aegis of ABSU in the past. It was a time to establish the greater Bodo nation in the corridors of developed nation, but our lethargic and selfish motive has led to the degradation to the root level.
              As reported and to everybody’s knowledge, the ABSU will assert its continued demand for Bodoland and in parallel the ruling BPF may assert its influence on to promulgate Home and Finance department to the BTC for more efficient governance. Both are a welcome gesture on the part of the all round development of the Bodoland. Narrow criticism, abusive language and threats will never serve the Bodos for unity and understanding rather may create communal hatred, disharmony and bloodsheds. We have to appease the anti-elements by any means!!!
       It’s a time to respond to the call of the day and take a strategic role for the Bodo nation.
Let us shun violence, let peace and unity reign Bodoland.

Karbi council row rages

Nagaon, Oct. 18: Tuliram Ranghang today took charge as the chief executive member of the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council a few hours after outgoing council chief Jayram’s Engleng complained to the governor about a conspiracy to oust him.
“Four major issues —separate state under Article 3, overall development of the hill district, solution to the inter-state border disputes, creation of work culture and quality education are our priority,” Ranghang said today.
“My executive body will be announced within a week and the members will take charge once the list is approved by the governor,” he added.
Engleng moved Assam governor J.B. Patnaik last night and submitted a memorandum, demanding steps against all those who allegedly “engineered the month-long conspiracy” against him.
He told reporters that even the chairman of the council has violated constitutional guidelines by replacing him as the chief of the autonomous council.
On Tuesday, the council’s special session was held and the executive body was dissolved in Engleng’s absence. Tuliram Ranghang was subsequently declared the new chief.
“The entire episode has been engineered by a minister in the Tarun Gogoi cabinet for his personal gain. I explained everything to the governor yesterday. He, in return, admitted the legitimacy of my demand,” Engleng said.
The council plunged into a crisis on September 14 after 17 elected members signed a no-confidence letter against Engleng.
On October 3, the members moved the governor, demanding a special session. The same day, Engleng moved Gauhati High Court.
The court fixed December 6 as the date of hearing on the subject. “The case is pending in court and the sessions were held bypassing the court’s order,” Engleng said.
Engleng’s supporters also claimed that the Congress leadership’s decision to bypass the high court’s recent directive is a violation of constitutional guidelines.
