BPF’s toxic atmosphere compels its leaders to quit, the party may vanish soon: Pramod Boro

First Published: 12th April, 2024 11:25 IST

Pramod Boro's remarks come in the wake of the recent resignation of former deputy chief of the Bodo Territorial Council Chandan Brahma from BPF.

The Chief Executive Member (CEM) of Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR) Pramod Boro has cast doubt on the Bodoland People’s Front (BPF’s) survival in Assam.

He has also alluded to an atmosphere within the BPF that compelled leaders to step down, hinting at deeper rifts and dissatisfaction among party members.

Speaking to media in Gohpur on the sidelines of an election campaign yesterday, Boro said, “Former BTR CEM and BPF chief Hagrama Mohilary behave like a king. He does not give importance to leaders’ ideas and opinions. Because of his arbitrary behavior, many leaders of the party has quit and joined other political parties including United People’s Party Liberal (UPPL).”

Pramod Boro’s remarks come in the wake of the recent resignation of former 3-time Assam cabinet minister and deputy chief of the Bodo Territorial Council (BTC), Chandan Brahma and his supporters from BPF.

Chandan Brahma’s resignation ahead of the ensuing Lok sabha elections marked a significant blow to the BPF.

After resigning from the party, Chandan Brahma said, “I have not taken this decision as a mark of opposition or regret against any individual. This is the need of the hour and the situation. In the days to come, it is important we all together work for the greater development of the region (BTR) and permanent peace.”

Brahma and his supporters have already decided to join the Pramod Boro-led UPPL.
