NDFB call for Daimari’s release for peace talks
TEZPUR, Nov 4 – Without release of NDFB supremo Ranjan Daimari, the peace-talk between the NDFB and the government cannot be accelerated. It was said today by the NDFB’s education secretary B. Naijab while interacting with the media persons at a remote area of Assam-Arunachal border in Sonitpur district.
Replying to query how many basic points of talks are supposed to be, if talk begins with the Government of India the self styled education secretary of the Ranjan Daimari faction NDFB, said that they are stressing three basic points, that the Bodos have to be allowed to survive with dignity and honour, the lost lands falling under the 45 tribal belts and blocks are to be returned and the chairman of the organization Ranjan Daimari to be released from the jail.
Saying the NDFB’s struggle is a legitimate struggle the hard-core NDFB leader further stated that until they get back their rights to land and resources their movement will be continued. Moreover, stressing the long pending separate state or the Bodoland issue B Naijab further added that they are not against the peace-talks, rather they urged the agencies concerned including the Central Government to come forward to accelerate the peace talk for the interest of establishment of permanent peace in the region. “NDFB’s acts are not part of criminal violence but a political conflict which should be solved politically,” he said, adding that a section of the society and even government-motivated people are always trying to defame the NDFB’s image by untoward incidents like extortion, kidnapping and threatening in the name of NDFB.
“We urge those who involved in such acts to be away from doing so,” he said.
