GUWAHATI, June 14: Assam Rifles on Thursday organised a mega blood donation camp in the Assam Rifles headquarter in Agartala.

Assam Rifles troopers, officers, as well as their family members, along with personnels from the Border Security Force (BSF), and teachers and staff from the Assam Rifles school, took part in the camp.

The blood donation camp was organised in response to an appeal by Chief Minister Manik Saha, who necessitated voluntary blood donations to address the concerns about critical blood shortage in hospitals across the state following the recent elections.

The appeal echoed strongly with the Assam Rifles, the oldest paramilitary force in India, and the BSF, leading to a collaborative effort resulting in the donation of more than 125 units of blood.
