    Hagrama Mohilary: Forced To Reconsider Our Alliance With BJP

    The BTC's term ended on April 27 and Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi took the decision to take control over the BTC until elections are held in the coming days

    Unhappy with the Governor’s rule in the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC), Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) chief said Hagrama Mohilary said his party is “forced to reconsider the understanding” with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

    The BJP rules Assam in alliance with the Asom Gana Parishad and the BPF, which has been ruling BTC since its inception.

    The elections were scheduled to be held for the BTC on April 4th, 2020 but was deferred indefinitely in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Taking to microblogging site Twitter, Mohilary wrote, “Though we are in alliance with @BJP4India in the state, we are forced to reconsider our understanding. We are looking at other alternatives. I request Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi, BJP President Shri @JPNadda and Home Minister Shri @AmitShah to look into the matter.”

    The council’s term ended on April 27th, 2020 and Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi took the decision to take control over the BTC until elections are held in the coming days.

    Mukhi is the constitutional head of BTC, a Sixth Schedule area. He has appointed bureaucrats Rajesh Prasad and Siddhartha Singh as the Administrator and Principal Secretary of BTC respectively.

    Mohilary also informed on April 30th, 2020 that a petition has been filed at the Gauhati High Court against the decision to impose Governor’s rule in the BTC.
