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.
