Bodo leaders gave a memorandum to the Home Minister who said that the Bodoland Territorial Council was created in 2003 and they were informed at that time that there was no policy to create a new state.

Bodoland People's Front chief Hagrama Mohilary said that if Bodoland was not given statehood on the lines of Telangana, they would start a mass agitation. The executive council of the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC), which is being run by the Bodoland People's Front, has decided to adopt a resolution to demand the creation of a separate state.

All Bodo Students' Union (ABSU) has also threatened to launch a mass movement for Bodoland.
