During the election the BJP promised both written (manifesto) and verbal that they would resolve the Boro problem immediately, if they could come to power in New Delhi. The Boro leadership supported the BJP in the parliamentary election and 5 out of 7 seats that BJP won. The BJP was voted to power and their regime in Delhi is sailing smoothly for three years now. However, there is no initiative to solve the Bodoland issue.
