Bodo Agreement Drishti Ias

Under the agreement, villages dominated by Bodos, which were currently outside the BTAD, would be included and those without a Bodo population would be excluded. Under the agreement, NDFB groups will leave the path of violence, surrender their weapons and dissolve their armed organizations within one month of signing the agreement. An Assam-based Karbis insurgent group, which has signed a ceasefire agreement with the Centre, has demanded that the Bodos not be granted the planned tribal status in the hilly areas, as this will affect „the identity of the carbis“. Recently, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), the Government of Assam and the Bodo groups signed a tripartite agreement to revoke, rename and amend the power-sharing agreement in the Bodoland Territorial District (BTAD) in Assam. Signing the agreement would end the 50-year-old Bodo crisis. M. Kabi said there was a lot of pressure from people to conclude discussions with the Center. The group is in discussion with the Centre`s interlocutor, A.B Mathur. „90% of the dialogue is over, we have had more than 50 round tables with three interlocutors in the last ten years. We want a final agreement on the model of the Bodo agreement,“ said Rijak Dera, secretary of KLNLF. So far, the agreement does not address the issue of „citizenship or work permit“ for non-residential residences at the BTAD, which will be renamed Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR). As part of the agreement, hill bodos are granted Scheduled Hill Tribe status and Bodos-dominated villages outside the BTAD will be included and those without bodos will be excluded. This agreement has been described as the third agreement.

According to the Union government, the signing of the agreement will put an end to the 50-year-old Bodo crisis. This agreement is a series of concerted efforts to meet the aspirations of the Bodo people with regard to their cultural identity, language, education and economic development and political aspirations. 3. NDFB (S): In 2012, Ingti Kathar Songbijit created an NDFB (S) separate from NDFB, a group opposed to discussions with the government that accused the group of killing 66 members of his tribe in 2014. The four districts of Assam – Kokrajhar, Baksa, Udalguri and Chirang – which form the Bodo Territorial District (BTAD) are home to several ethnic groups. An important agreement was recently signed between the Indian government, the government of Assam and the Bodo community to end decades of internal conflict in the northeastern state of Assam. It is believed that the Bodo tribe had been demanding for decades that the upper course of the banks of the Brahmaputra River become a separate state from Bodoland. Behind the Bodo movement, it has been argued that the official presence of other communities in the Bodo tribal region threatens the sovereignty, identity and culture of the community. People associated with the Bodo movement have repeatedly resorted to violence to meet their demands, which has long caused unrest in the region.
