Kashmir row ignites Bodo UT-Statehood demand

The division of Kashmir reignited the Bodo nationalism once again as bifurcation of Assam has been demanded with one group demanding Union Territory and another group full statehood.

When Union Home Minister Amit Shah was piloting the parliamentary matters related to Article 370 and creation of two Union Territories, the Bodoland Peoples Front (BPF) jumped to its defence but demanded that BTC should also be upgraded as Union Territory.

The BJP MP Biswajit Daimary forcefully asserted that Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) should be upgraded as the Union Territory.

On the other hand on Tuesday the ABSU also joined the bandwagon as they addressed a press conference and upped the ante demanding separate Bodoland state.
