New Delhi, January 27, 2020:

Assam Rajya Sabha MP Biswajit Daimary has informed that the upcoming peace pact between the Bodo organizations and the Government will be the final solution to the long drawn out armed struggle of the Bodo-Kachari community of Assam.

"Every stakeholder will be a part of this process. In the earlier Accords, some bodies were left out. In the 1993 Accord, the NDFB was missing. In 2003, the ABSU and the NDFB did not sign the Accord. However, all the organizations who have taken part in the political and communal issues of the Bodos, including the civil society organizations as well as militants, will be a part of this peace pact. There won't be any more armed conflict after the signing of this Accord", Daimary told Inside Northeast.

Now, all the organizations who have protested against the Bodo will be a part of this -- nobody will be left out. From today onwards, there will be no more struggle...this is a pact for peace. The militants will return to the mainstream and lay down their arms....this should take place in the upcoming days.."

Daimary also informed that the Bodo areas will receive more Governmental aid and the benefits of this new agreement will be reaped by all in the Bodo-dominated areas, including the non-tribal communities which have been agitating against the Government's move to ink a new Accord with the Bodos.

"There have not been any talks of area extension. As per the talks as of yet, no, there has not been any hint that any new territory shall be added to the BTC region", Daimary said, responding to the reports of the Government adding more area to the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) from neighboring Assam districts.
