The review meeting will be attended by the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) leader Khampa Borgoyary, Assam Tourism Minister Chandan Brahma and Rajya Sabha (RS) MP Biswajit Daimary will also be present in the review meeting. Sources said that the meeting will discuss threadbare each and every clause of the Accord. The BTC representatives are likely to reiterate their demand for direct funding to the Council in the review meeting.
It may be recalled that in 2003, the Bodo militants in Assam laid down arms and signed an agreement with the Government of India known as the Bodo Accord. A Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) was established under this Accord and a Bodoland Territorial Areas District (BTAD) was created under the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution.
The BTAD was formed to look after the administrative and development needs of the Bodo-dominated areas. The BTAD covers four districts of Assam – Kokrajhar, Baksa, Chirang and Udalguri.
