Another Bodo accord will be signed at 1:30 pm on Monday.
Notably, the initiative to bring the NDFB factions together for an accord was taken under the stewardship of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The All Bodo Students’ Union will be a key signatory in this Accord.
The Bodo accord is expected to reaffirm the territorial integrity of Assam and at the same time usher in a new hope of peace and progress in Bodoland.
Meanwhile, several organizations have called a 12-hour Assam bandh opposing the Bodo accord.
Normal life has been affected partially in the lower Assam districts.
The bandh has been called by several organizations opposing formation of Union Territorial Council (UTC), covering BTAD and three other districts of Assam.
It has been reported that as part of the Accord, the Centre may grant formation of a Union Territorial Council (UTC) covering the four districts under Bodoland Territorial Area Districts (BTAD) and 3 other districts.
