PM Modi hails Bodo accord, says it will usher new dawn of peace and harmony


New Delhi: Hours after the Union government signed a peace accord with Bodo insurgent groups, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed the decision, saying that the agreement will usher in a new dawn of peace, harmony and togetherness in a series of tweet applauding the historic moment.


The government on Monday signed an accord with the National Democratic Front of Boroland (NDFB), one of the dreaded insurgent groups of Assam, providing political and economic bonanza sans a separate state or Union Territory.

The All Bodo Students’ Union (ABSU), which has been spearheading a movement for a Bodoland state since 1972, and another group called United Bodo People’s Organisation were also signatories to the accord.
