He also alleged that the Bodo groups had supported BJP in the Lok Sabha elections.

"Despite the massacre of tribals at the hands of Bodo organisations, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government celebrated good governance day across the nation and has not shown any remorse for the poor tribals," he said.

Bhuria, who is also the chairman of Madhya Pradesh Adivasi Vikas Parishad, said he had spoken to former Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Ajit Jogi and soon they would meet the President Pranab Mukherjee on the issue.

He also criticised the NDA government for not being able to give land rights to more than 30 percent of landless tribals despite the UPA government framing a law on the issue.
