Boro Liberation Army notice

This comes at a time when Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had said that the third Bodo accord had ushered in a new era of peace in the Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR).

The third Bodo Accord was signed between the Assam government and the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) on January 27, 2020.

Reacting to this, BTR chief Pramod Boro said that the formation of new outfits indicates that there are illegal weapons in circulation.

However, the BTR chief said that the Assam Police are strong enough to crush any such move.

“In 2020, we signed an agreement. After the agreement, somewhere between 5 and 10 boys holding arms are seen opening new militant groups. This is not a new thing,” the BTR chief said.
