Details

The Bodo, an ancient ethnic group of Northeast India, has been resorting to a movement for autonomy. A section of the Bodo educated youth being thoroughly disillusioned with constitutional safeguards, like autonomy arrangements, joined a secessional struggle, which has not only radically transformed the character and substance of the Bodo assertion from autonomy to secession in terms of goals, but also the methods of achieving it, by showing preference to violence. Tracing the historical background of the Bodos, this book seeks to analyse the emergence of the NDFB, its support base, its demands and strategies to achieve them. It also examines the factors that persuaded the NDFB to adopt extremist methods for achieving its goals, the nature and extent of support for the NDFB's demand for a Sovereign Bodoland, the relationship of NDFB with the other Bodo organisations and responses of the BTC, as well as the Union and State Governments to the demands of the NDFB.
