Kokrajhar: Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) chief Hagrama Mohilary has termed that the Bodoland Territorial Administration Districts (BTAD) Sena, which was formed by sitting Kokrajhar Lok Sabha MP Naba Kumar Sarania, was illegal and does nothing for the society in the state. He alleged that the ‘BTAD Sena’ nomenclature itself was meaningless.
Mohilary said this while unveiling a music video album titled Gwdwni Rwisumei in Kokrajhar on Thursday.
Mohilary, who is also the president of the Bodoland People’s Front (BPF), has come down heavily on Sarania and questioned why the BTAD Sena was formed in BTAD region and what were the leaders of the organisation doing for the citizens? He also criticised the MP for his unnecessary political initiative in the region and termed that the formation of BTAD Sena was meaningless and unnecessary for the people.
“There was no need for BTAD Sena in the council area. BTAD Sena was totally nothing and unacceptable for the society as claimed the MP Sarania. No impact will be seen in the region,” Mohilary further said.
MP Sarania formed the BTAD Sena in the third week of October to sign for the welfare and developmental aspects in Bodoland Tribal Council (BTC)-administered region.
On CAB, Mohilary said that the BJP-led NDA government has been initiating to implement the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB) very soon as it has already taken necessary measures to work out the bill. He said that people of the state must be brought through good consultation on the Bill before making bold implementation.
“As per my knowledge, the Centre has been taking strong steps to implement the CAB after consulting with stakeholders in the state of Assam,” Mohilary added.
On upcoming BTC election, Mohilary said that his BPF will continue the alliance with BJP and AGP till the BTC elections which is due in March-April 2020 next year. He said that his party was fully prepared to contest the council elections and the party has been carrying out party meetings in all the districts. He said that the BPF-BJP-AGP alliance will be continued in the coming days.
He further informed that his alliance partners BJP and AGP parties are likely to get seven and three seats, respectively, to contest the council elections. Mohilary was also hopeful that the NRC will be updated in the state properly in future.
