Kokrajhar: A special convention held at Gwjwn Pwthar Tamulpur in Assam’s Baksa district was marked by emotional scenes as Promod Boro, the president of All Bodo Students’ Union (ABSU), stepped down as the chief of the students’ body, after leading it for over 30 years, on Wednesday evening.
It was a highly emotional moment for Boro himself as he broke down while hoisting the ABSU flag for the last time as the president. Youngsters and elders too broke down as he bid tearful adieu to them as the student union leader.
Students were seen hugging Boro with teary eyes and many touched his feet as a mark of respect and also honoured him with the tradional ‘aronai’.
“I served the students’ body for 30 years and was involved with the organisation bearing office bearer for 19 years. Of this, I served as president for 11 years since 2009,” said the former president in his speech.
After Promod Boro, former vice president of the students’ union, Dipen Boro, was elevated as the new president of ABSU.
Boro said, “We do hope that the recently signed Bodo accord will bring more integrity and development in the area. Each and every clause of the third Bodo Accord must get proper implementation.”
