Guwahati: With just a few days left for the Bodoland Territorial Council elections, Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) Chief Hagrama Mohilary has claimed that BPF will win 23 to 25 seats and occupy the BTC.

On Thursday, while addressing a massive political rally at 27 Nagarijuli constituency Hagrama Mohilary said, “BPF is definitely going to form a government in Bodoland Territorial Region. BPF will win 23-25 seats and occupy the BTC. And after winning the election, we will first distribute land pattas to all the people. We will definitely distribute land pattas immediately after the election in Kokrajhar, Baksa, Chirang, Udalguri.”

Hagrama also added that all appointments in BTC will be given to the youth of that particular district where the vacancy arises. Grants will be provided under the Bodoland Darpan Scheme for temples, mosques, churches and all other religious activities.
