United People’s Liberal Party (UPPL) President Pramod Boro pledged to work for the protection and preservation of the culture and language of each community in Bodo Territorial Council.
Pramod Boro, who was president of the All Bodo Student Union (ABSU) before joining the UPPL, said his political party was quite different from the others.
Addressing a meeting at the Tangla Upper Secondary School playground, he assured that if the UPPL were voted into power in Bodo Territorial Council, it would be “inclusive” in its real terms.
Boro said that every citizen will be identified as a stakeholder and that no representative will be allowed to acquire power in absolute terms and thus provide transparent and friendly governance.
The UPPL chief said he had joined politics to serve the residents of the BTC areas and would never abuse his position.
Boro alleged that the Bodoland Popular Front (BPF) lacked vision, which explained the lack of industrial policies and skills development initiatives within BTC.
The UPPL leader said his party will work around the clock to positively mold the power of educated unemployed youth to play an active role in the BTC development process.
Boro has promised to provincialize all the schools in the Bodo belt if the UPPL is voted into power.
The leader of the disbanded NDFB (P), Govindo Basumatary also addressed the assembly and said: “We are determined to strengthen peace and unity in the region and to pave the way for development.”
