BPF mulls student wing

Kokrajhar, May 24: The Bodoland Peoples’ Front (BPF) is contemplating forming a student body, Bodoland Students’ Union, on the lines of National Students Union of India, a student wing of the Congress.

Speaking to reporters at the secretariat, BTC chief Hagrama Mohilary also accused Congress BTC member Kalilur Rehman of creating communal tension in Goreswar.

Mohilary said, “We are thinking of forming Bodoland Students Union comprising students of the Bodo region. It will have members from every college and university.”

He said the student union would work for development and empowerment of youths. “We have student unions of every community which raise their voices for the cause of their respective communities, like Absu for Bodos and AKRSU for Rajbongshis. The Bodoland Students Union will be for all communities,” Mohilary said.

Mohilary also criticised Rehman for playing a destructive role to divide Bodos and non-Bodos. Rehman is a BTC member from Turibari constituency of the Congress.

Mohilary said Rehman was the main person behind the formation of Oboro Suraksha Samiti.

Mohilary said he would himself ask the Congress leadership in the state to expel Rehman.
