The National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB) has announced its support to the Bhutanese Maoists, Thaindian news portal reports.
According to the report, NDFB chairman D.R Nabla, in an e-mail to IANS, has promised to render all support with congratulations to the Bhutanese Maoists for their fights against the ruling cliques.
The Maoists have been eyeing to create trouble in Bhutan and are hence keen to set up bases in Assam to stage hit and run guerrilla strikes in the adjoining Buddhist nation.
“We are not going to allow Maoists to use Assam as a launch pad for violence in Bhutan and also eventually in Assam,” Thaindian.com quotes a senior Assam police officer as saying.
NDFB’s nexus with the Bhutanese Maoist plays very significant role in the geo-political strategy of the region and is seen as mutual exchange of shelter and logistics along the Assam-Bhutan boarder.
