The most important thing of the Bodo Agreement is that this agreement avoids another partition of Assam by fulfilling the political ambition of the Bodo tribe group. Most of the demands of Bodo organizations have been accepted. This is the reason why the All Bodo Students’ Union, a democratic movement for a separate state, and all groups of gun-raising National Democratic Front of Bodoland agreed to sign the new agreement. The Bodoland Liberation Tigers, led by the current President of the Bodoland Territorial Council, Hagrama Mohilary, laid down their arms on 10 February 2003 under the rule of Atal Bihari Vajpayee. After this the Bodoland Territorial Council was formed, but on the other hand the violent movement of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland continued. At the same time, the All Bodo Students’ Union continued its democratic movement.
There were several reasons for their demand for a separate state. The biggest reason was the neglectful policy of the Assam government. But the Bodo tribal group will now get more rights under the current agreement. The proposed Bodoland Territorial Region would get adequate statutory, administrative and financial powers. The number of members of the council has also been reduced to 60, which means they will have almost the entire assembly. This will fulfill his political ambitions. The plains of Bodo have Scheduled Tribe status, but they did not have this facility in the hilly area, which was completely impractical. In Bodo area, it was inappropriate to open Bodo medium schools. After the new agreement, they will be able to establish schools for the development of their language and there will be a separate directorate for this, That is, the right to education will now be with the proposed council BTR. The Bodo language has been recognized as the official language of Assam. Devanagari script is practiced for Bodo language.
This agreement can be put forward as a model to organizations seeking a separate state in other areas of the country. This agreement underlines that steps can be taken to meet the demands of the people of a particular region without dividing any state. This agreement will have a far-reaching impact on the whole of Northeast India with Assam. The biggest success of this agreement is that it included all the factions of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland, giving the agreement a strong foundation. If the agreement was made with one faction, it could not be a permanent solution, because when there was agreement with the other faction, it would have to be renewed. The same applies to peace talks with the NSCN in Nagaland. If there is agreement with a militant group in Nagaland, So the violent movement of other groups will continue. This would mean stealing from a permanent solution to the problem. The agreement will have political benefits, but such an agreement can never be a permanent solution. The good thing is that the central government is also negotiating with all the factions in case of Naga insurgency, so that all the factions are included in the agreement. Different groups have often been compromised in the Northeast. Therefore, militant violence resumes after a few days of peace. Several agreements have been reached in the hill district of Assam, but after a few days, disgruntled militants have started violence by forming a new group. This has been taken care of in the Bodo Agreement. So that all the factions are included in the agreement. Different groups have often been compromised in the Northeast. Therefore, militant violence resumes after a few days of peace. Several agreements have been reached in the hill district of Assam, but after a few days, disgruntled militants have started violence by forming a new group. This has been taken care of in the Bodo Agreement. So that all the factions are included in the agreement. Different groups have often been compromised in the Northeast. Therefore, militant violence resumes after a few days of peace. Several agreements have been reached in the hill district of Assam, but after a few days, disgruntled militants have started violence by forming a new group. This has been taken care of in the Bodo Agreement.
The people of the Northeast have been very sensitive in terms of their language and culture. Many tribal groups will have a population of only a few thousand. However, the way Bodo has been made the official language of Assam, it will also have an impact on other languages ​​and dialects of the Northeast. Small groups using those languages ​​and dialects will increase confidence that the central government will take steps to preserve their language and dialect.
It would not be wrong to say that after a long agitation the Bodo tribal people spread across the Brahmaputra valley of Assam finally got their due. However, his movement started for a separate state. The Bodo tribe extended to the border of Bangladesh adjacent to Meghalaya at the time of independence. But they continued to retreat due to illegal infiltration. He did not like being with other people. They retreated to the border of Bhutan. Thereafter, he grew angry against the encroachment, as a result of which he started a movement led by the Plain Tribal Council of Assam in 1966, demanding a separate Bodo state. A memorandum was also submitted to the then President Zakir Hussain for the formation of a separate state called ‘Udayachal’. Later militant violence started. In the meantime, the All Bodo Students Union was formed and its president Upen Brahm made a long agitation to divide Assam into equal parts. Government repression increased, So one after the other, the militant organization started being born. The first militant organization called Bodoland Security Force (BSF) was born. The National Democratic Front of Bodoland was formed after the split between them. There was also a split and a new organization under the leadership of Hagrama Mohilary- Bodo Liberation Tigers was born. Hundreds of people died in factional violence between these two organizations. The movement continued between ups and downs. More than four thousand people died in this movement. 
Now about 1,500 militants are preparing ceremonially to lay down their arms. If the agreement is put to the ground honestly, the development of that entire region will gain new momentum. Clearly, it will also have an impact on other backward areas. But in this, the Assam government and the Bodo leadership will have to take the initiative to realize their aspirations, otherwise this agreement will become ineffective.
