The Assam government on October 7 decided to bring in an ordinance to accord Bodo the status of associate official language of the state.

At a meeting of the state Cabinet chaired by Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal this evening, a number of decisions were taken related to the Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR) and the Bodo people residing across the state.

In the backdrop of massive controversy over the Assam Police job exam paper leak scandal, the Cabinet decided that all future job examinations of any department will be conducted by the government or central university.

"Decision taken to make Bodo associate official language in Assam through an ordinance," a communique from the Chief Minister's Office said.
