Description: "Ethnic Conflict has drastically damaged all the four districts of BTC, namely Kokrajhar, Baksha, Chirang and Udalguri of the council where largest population of the Bodos ethnic communities are living. In the conflict many innocent lives are lost especially women and children. Many lost their properties, became homeless and displaced from their own native places/villages. In such situation many villagers were forced to leave their native place. 45% of the women and children from the districts are made to stay in the relief camps set up by the community and the paramilitary forces. The public properties such as schools, colleges and public health centres were burned down in order to avoid Indian military coming and staying as camps in such places. The baseline survey conducted by NEDAN with support of district administration in Chirang district through village committees indicate that altogether 685 households were affected in ethnic conflict from both Santhals and Bodo communities at international border area of Assam and Royal Kingdom of Bhutan.
