SILCHAR, May 29:
 Silchar legislator Dipayan Chakraborty’s drawing competition on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose with the participation of about 1760 children has set a distinctive example in the entire state.
On Sunday, MLA Dipayan Chakraborty took special initiative in association with the management of Silchar’s Netaji Murti Nabanirman o Sthapana Committee and set a new example in Silchar to convey the respect, ideology and ideals of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose to the new generation.
The drawing competition was organised at the India Club Indoor Stadium in Silchar on Sunday which created history in Silchar.
MLA Dipayan Chakraborty also made an announcement during the inaugural ceremony of the art competition that a new statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose would be installed in Silchar.
“The installation ceremony is scheduled to take place on August 25 at Rangirkhari in Silchar, and the chief ministers of Assam, Manipur, and Tripura were invited to participate in the event,” said the MLA.
MLA Chakraborty also highlighted the city’s significant population and size growth, which prompted the special initiative to establish a new statue of Netaji Bose. He commended the previous efforts made to erect Netaji’s statue and expressed his hope that the new statue would enhance the city’s beauty. Donations were being collected from individuals based on their ability to ensure widespread participation in the statue’s installation. Cachar deputy commissioner also presented a cheque of Rs 50,000 to support the reconstruction and installation of the statue.
Speaking at the event, Cachar deputy commissioner Rohan Kumar Jha also praised the large number of participants in the sit-and-draw competition and announced plans to organise similar events on District Day, which falls on June 13. He urged the children to follow Netaji’s ideals.
While addressing the students and participants Cachar superintendent of police Numal Mahatto congratulated the contestants, parents, and organisers for their contribution to Assam’s biggest drawing competition. He expressed hope that this tradition would continue to flourish among the new generation.
Several notable individuals, including Dr Nirmal Kanti Roy, Dr Ganesh Nandi, Dr SC Das, Dr Debashish Chakraborty, Dr Gautam Dutta, Sandipan Dutta Purkayastha, Debashish Shome, and others, were present at the event. The event was conducted by Nilotpal Sengupta.
It’s worthy to mention that the art competition witnessed a record-breaking participation of 1,760 students. It was for the first time that such a large-scale sit-and-draw competition had been organised in Barak Valley, which required significant efforts from the organisers and the police to ensure smooth traffic control.
On the occasion of the installation of the new Netaji statue in Silchar, a speech competition on the biography of Netaji was organised with the students of various educational institutes, which was aimed at generating response.
