The Barak Democratic Front (BDF), led to the rise in billboards throughout the town that clearly demands for a separate Barak. The BDF uses these billboards/ hoardings as a platform to demand that Barak Valley be given its own state.

The Barak Democratic Front (BDF), put up large hoardings in 3 districts of Barak including Silchar demanding for a separate Barak. It is also decided to publish 5 lakh books on the need for a separate Barak. According to information, Barak Valley’s growth and prosperity have been impeded by the state government’s neglect.

According to the BDF, Barak Valley’s complaints result from Assam’s historical separation from Barak, when the British united Assam with Barak. The billboards claim that separation is the only way to address all of the problems that the people of Barak Valley are facing. The BDF also claims that they will go to villages to create mass awareness. 

According to BDF official Pradeep Dutta Roy, the money for these billboards came directly from the people of Silchar. BDF employees asked donations from those who agreed with their vision, highlighting the community’s support for their cause.

Roy clarifies that the campaign’s goals are to gain public support and increase awareness of the difficulties facing Barak Valley. He draws attention to Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma’s declaration that the BDF should step up its awareness-raising efforts if the residents of Barak Valley pursued a separate state.

The billboards highlight the conflict between declarations and actions, pointing out that the Prime Minister had promised to demolish such establishments, but instead Asia’s largest prison camp was built in Goalpara. Roy highlights the need for a review of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and raises concerns about the way people are treated in these camps. He emphasises the necessity for an unbiased and open procedure while expressing worries about the effects of NRC on Muslims and Hindus in Barak Valley.

Pradeep Dutta Roy stresses once more the necessity of their demand for separation, stressing that it is their last resort for promoting development in Barak Valley and improving the lives of its people. He lists the proactive actions done, such as the press conferences in Delhi and Kolkata and the correspondence sent to important individuals including the President, Prime Minister, and Home Minister. Roy expresses optimism that their requests will be answered in a favourable way.

Additionally, he highlights the growing support from the public and says he is willing to validate it through an electoral process, providing the government allows permission.
