Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) president Hagrama Mohilary on Monday dismissed the latest Bodo Accord as a non-entity.

Lashing out against former All Bodo Students’ Union (ABSU) president Pramod Boro, Mohilary said, “Pramod Boro has betrayed the entire Bodo community”.

He further said that the new Bodo Accord was not capable of bringing about any positive changes for the Bodo community.

Coming down heavily on Pramod Boro further, Mohilary said, “He is useless. Boro had said a number of times that he will not join politics, but today he is the president of a political party.”

“The Bodo community has not provided any contract to Boro to lead them. People will not listen to what he says,” Mohilary added.

The former ABSU president recently joined the United People’s Party Liberal (UPPL).

The BTR Accord, signed on January 27, was based only as per the draft of demands prepared by the ABSU and NDFB(P), keeping intellectuals and the BPF in the dark.

Had there been discussions over the draft of the charter of demands the effectiveness would certainly have been better.

The Centre, along with the Assam Government, had signed the accord with all factions of the National Democratic Front of Boroland (NDFB), ABSU and UBPO.

Commenting on the accord Mohilary said, “The new accord just changes the name of BTC to Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR) and gives us nothing. We can’t accept this accord.”
