Kokrajhar: A five-member delegation of the Bodoland People’s Front (BPF), leads by its vice-president Hemendra Nath Brahma, visited Lower and Upper Lampi lately, a disputed area along Assam-Meghalaya border.
The team was escorted by BPF MLA Pradip Kumar Brahma, vice-presidents Md Baktar Ali Ahmed, Probin Boro and former president of BPF women’s wing, Maloti Rani Narzary.
The team meets up a cross-section of local people at Lower Lampi and considered the border dispute between the two states.
The team also visited Upper Lampi to consider the situation, besides monitoring development activities in border areas.
Brahma blamed the state government of not taking proper measures to reconcile the border issue. Brahma said that road communication, key to economic development, has not improved in the area at all.
Brahma also condemns the state and central government for not making available basic facilities to the people, adding the state government should bring in further development schemes to the area.
