Bodoland now peaceful, armoury important for the area: CEM Pramod Boro

It was a congenial moment for the people of Bodoland as all-important organizations were being set up in the BTR.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday laid the foundation stone of the state-of-the-art armoury of the Border Security Force (BSF) and CRPF in the Tamulpur area of Bodoland in Assam.

Speaking to Northeast Live on the occasion, Bodoland chief Pramod Boro said, “It is a very proud moment for us as the largest institution of India will be established in this part of the country.”

“Today, our home minister is coming here for Bhumi Pooja for laying the foundation stone. Once upon a time this was a disturbed area and now it has turned into a peaceful area after signing the Bodo accord,” Boro added.

The CEM said that the BSF, which is one of the most important defence organizations, proposed to establish the armoury for the BSF and the CRPF. It was Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma who sought to set up the armoury in Bodoland. Consequently, the plot of land was selected in Tamulpur.

Further, he continued that it was a congenial moment for the people of Bodoland as all-important organizations were being set up in the BTR after the signing of the Bodo Peace Accord of 2020, adding that the visit of the Union Home Minister was indeed remarkable.
