Kokrajhar: In what can now be termed as a major twist in the political scenario of Bodoland, Anjali Daimary, president of Bodo Women’s Justice Forum (BWJF), has formally joined the BPF (Bodoland Peoples’ Front) party.
A professor by profession, Daimary formally joined the BPF on Monday at Udalguri. She joined the party in presence of BPF president Hagrama Mohilary, Rihon Daimary, minister Chandan Brahma, and Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament Biswajit Daimary.
In a grand ceremony, Anjali was felicitated and also accorded a warm welcome by the BPF members.
Anjali Daimary is the younger sister of National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) (R) supremo Ranjan Daimary, who was sentenced to life in prison for serial bomb blasts in Assam in 2008.
She is an instrumental figure in fighting for the cause of Bodo people. Additionally, she has also been fighting a legal battle for her brother Ranjan’s release since his arrest.
Her joining BPF is nothing less than a big boost to the party and BPF is also likely to field her as their candidate in the upcoming 2021 state assembly elections.
