Outgoing CEM Hagrama Mohilary of Bodo Peoples’ Front (BPF) was not present in the ceremony. Mohilary has been the CEM of the council for the last 17 years.

Promod Bodo expressed his gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Chief Minister Sarbanada Sonowal and Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for signing of the new Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR) accord in January this year.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji is a visionary leader, who has taken the initiative to solve the problems of the Bodos so that peace can prevail,” the new CEM of BTC said.

“Many governments have come and gone but no such definite initiative like bringing all factions of the NDFB were taken before,” he added.

Promod Bodo assured all communities living in the Bodoland region to live without fear and to come forward with their problems which the new council will try to resolve.

UPPL had won 12 seats, BJP nine and GSP one seat in the just concluded 40-member council polls while the BPF, which had headed the BTC for the last three terms, emerged as the single largest party with 17 seats and Congress secured just one seat.

Congress member Sajal Kumar Sinha who joined the BJP on Monday has been expelled from the party.
