KOKRAJHAR. The Bodo Samitya Sabha, in association with Kokrajhar’s district committee observed on Friday the 22nd Death Anniversary of Subungthini Thandwi Bineswar Brahma. He was buried at Chandamari in Kokrajhar.
The programme included Taren Boro, president of BSS, hoisting the organization flag at half-mast while Lawrence Islary (MLA for 30-Kokrajhar East constituency), paid flowers tribute to his portrait. CEM of BTC Pramod Boo, EMs Ranjit Basumatary and Reo Reoa Narzihary ABSU President Dipen Boro Nilut Swargiary, Daobaisa Buro, president, ABWWF Dipali Narzary among other dignitaries, attended the event.
Taren Boro was the president of BSS. He stated Subungthini Thandwi Bineswar Brahma had a great responsibility for the success of Bodo media and literature. Brahma, he said, was selfless in his service to society and took moral responsibility. Brahma, he said, was born at a time when Bordos had witnessed the killings of fratricidal women and that he later lost his life.
Boro stated that Brahma was a key role in the inclusion of Bodo language into the Constitution of India’s 8th Schedule and the designation of it as an official language of Assam. Brahma’s hard work made possible the creation of a separate Directorate for Bodo, and other tribal languages. He urged everyone to remember his contribution to society.
Pramod Boro (BTC) chief stated that Brahma was an exemplary leader who had a clear mission and vision for his society, and worked hard. Bineswar Brahma, he said was a victim to violence and terrorist attacks. He stated, “I began to speak out against the terrorist arms movement since 2009 because terrorism has killed hundreds of innocent people.” He added that the public must now realize the devastating effects of terrorism. He stated that most Bodo leaders died due to violence from brothers. He said other youths from the region had been misguided and joined in the armed struggle.
