“As we complete our 189th year of Raising and enter our 190th year, I wish to recall the courage and valour as also the sacrifices made by our great force. Through the decades of the past two centuries, our contribution towards nation-building has been exemplary,” he said.

He emphasised the Assam Rifles’ connection with the people of the Northeast, and also highlighted the role of the force beyond the region.

“Our deep connection with the people of the Northeast has been unparalleled, though we have delivered whenever asked for beyond the region as we are doing in Kashmir and the United Nations now,” he said.

Paying homage to those laying their lives in the line of duty, Nair exhorted the serving personnel to continue doing their job with utmost sincerity.
