Responding to the Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) chief’s allegation that Boro has property in New Delhi and Guwahati, the BTC chief executive member said: “If Hagrama Mohilary can show my property in Delhi or Guwahati, I am ready to go to jail myself leaving aside election campaigning. But, if I can find out the undeclared property of Hagrama Mohilary, he should make it clear if he is ready to go to jail.”
“I dare Hagrama Mohilary to declare his assets, such hotels and businesses he has owned ruling BTC for 17 years ... His words have no value anymore. He cheated the people, is involved in corruption and misappropriated Rs 2300 crore. He has bought hotel, crusher machine and started a whole lot of businesses. I don’t want to say all these. But, since wants me to say all these, I have started calling him a trader from today, the biggest trader of Bodoland.
