GUWAHATI: Prime minister Narendra Modi is likely to visit Kokrajhar on February 7 to attend the celebration of the Bodo peace accord.

Taking to the Twitter, Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma wrote, "GoA has invited Hon PM Sri @narendramodi for his gracious presence at the celebrations for #BodoPeaceAccord at #Kokrajhar on February 7, 2020."

Meanwhile, Himanta Biswa visited Kokrajhar town in Kolkrajhar district during the day to review preparations for the rally to be addressed by PM Modi.

Earlier, the centre and the Assam government inked a peace agreement with representatives of Bodo organisations on January 27 to end the age-old Bodo insurgency demanding carving out a separate state out of Assam.

It is to be mentioned that the All Assam Students Union (AASU), which is spearheading the protests against the new citizenship law, had then warned of mass protests if Modi came here for the Khelo India Youth Games.
