Kokrajhar, Oct. 26: The Bodo National Conference held an executive meeting in Kokrajhar today to discuss the process of rehabilitation of the displaced people and the rising incidents of extortion.

Several resolutions were adopted in the meeting, which was chaired by BNC chairman and BTC chief Hagrama Mohilary.

Bodo Sahitya Sabha president Kameswar Brahma, BTC deputy chief Kampa Borgoyary, Bodo Women Justice Forum (BWJF) president Anjali Daimari and Rajya Sabha MP Biswajit Daimary also attended the meeting.

At the meeting, it was decided that stress would be laid on expediting the proper identification and deportation of illegal immigrants according to the law of the land.

Emphasis would also be laid on rehabilitating legitimate Indian citizens who have proper land pattas.

Talking to reporters after the meeting, chief convener Kampa Borgoyary said the BNC welcomed the initiatives taken by the BTC administration and the state government for rehabilitating the displaced people.

The conference also hailed the steps taken by the indigenous tribal co-ordination committees, he said.

The executive meeting expressed concern over the rising incidents of extortion.
