    Special felicitation was also presented to Manoj Swargiary, IPS, who have recently cleared the UPSC in 2018. The ABSU also facilitated Pratibha Brahma, who was recently elected as Vice President of The Tribal Cooperative Marketing Development Federation of India (TRIFED) under Ministry of Tribal Affairs, Govt. of India.

    The ABSU on this auspicious occasion sends strong message to the state government of Assam that there needs more support for the betterment and quality education performance by the Bodo Medium Students in the state. The Union urged the government to consider separate Directorate for the Bodo Medium in Assam towards taking care of the problems in Bodo medium Education in Assam, which will also begin the scope of top ten selection from Bodo medium separately under the state government to encourage the vernacular medium students.

    The ABSU leaders stated that there is very much hardship faced by the students from the Bodo Medium education from pre-priminary to Post Graduate due to the negligence by the Government of Assam. “The problems such as delay in supply of textbooks for Bodo medium, non-appointment of Maths and Sciences teachers in the Bodo Medium Schools, said ABSU president Promod Boro.

    The ABSU president said there is large number of vacant post of teachers from Primary to High Schools which makes very difficult to better the performance from the Bodo medium Schools. “Though there has been time and again representation to the state government to solve the problems there is least attention drawn towards solving it. Due to these problems the Bodo Medium students cannot outperform to get top Ten Position in the state under SEBA. Except one in 2017 HSLC at Rank 10 in Assam by Bibungsar Basumatary, he said.
