Dr Lohit Gogoi, a social worker, and Bhairov Munda, the president of the Sivasagar District Journalists Association, lit ceremonial lights in front of the statue of Lachit Borphukan.

Jiten Borpatragohain, the historian, highlighted Lachit Borphukan’s significant role as the main commandant of the Ahom Army in the famous battle of Saraighat.

Mira Kulkarni, the president of Akhil Bharatiya Praxikhan Kendra, Vivekananda Kendra, urged the women to be confident and determined in contributing to the progress of Bharat.
